Thanks ! Great object, but how did you do it, the math behind it must be very complex ?

Hi Eron,

No Maths involved, I modelled it in Rhino with some curves and a rail sweep then flowed it around a curve with history enabled so that I could twist it in situ.  I would normally have done it as a combination of Rhino and T-Splines but with Rhino 7 and Quadremesh/sub d tools it’s pretty straightforward. 

[No maths to speak of from my side but obviously under the hood of Rhino, very complex mathematics]

Cheers

Andy

Hmmm...  This is fun.  Shame the glass version doesn’t work very well but it will certainly come in handy for 30ft sculptures.  Messing around with my iPhone this morning
