We consider an interacting system of one-dimensional structures modeling fibers with fiber-fiber interaction in a fiber lay-down process. The resulting microscopic system is investigated by looking at different asymptotic limits of the corresponding stochastic model. Equations arising from mean-field and diffusion limits are considered. Furthermore, numerical methods for the stochastic system and its mean-field counterpart are discussed. A numerical comparison of solutions corresponding to the different scales (microscopic, mesoscopic, and macroscopic) is included.
