Update: However since the mesh does not bend nicely in that particular direction, I decided to rotate the weft so that it is parallel with the cables it is weaving through for the final project. When experimented the mesh easily bends along the x-axis (with the weft).
Finally I was able to experiment with real materials. The results of which are ambiguous. When using the ‘Rope Mesh’ and wooden rods to represent steel cables I noticed that everything was under serious tension.
The experiment helped show that the mesh does torque enough for my project to function.
