Yes, this is what I meant.

What I thought of is a kind of 'wire surface' which covers the area bewteen the first and the last wire. If the hook intersects this surface we cought a wire.
That is not the whole trueth, but may be a sufficient approximation.

Off the top of my head (and I'm in a real hurry at this second), I think it would be nice to make it possible to supply the FDMs with a force vector and point of application - perhaps even a moment vector. Is that what you are proposing?
