The Torus or donut shape is a continuing source of inspiration. The parameters with these models are: the number of cuts, offset of pieces from center, tilt of the pieces, minor diameter and thickness.
This torus or donut shape sculpture has been modeled and is being 3d printed in plastic and stainless steel as a study. Three equally opposing helical cuts at 120 degrees. Also shown are studies at 30 degree incremental twists along the z axis.
