Twisted Torus Metal Sculptures by LuxXeon Twisted Torus Metal Sculptures by LuxXeon
Modeled in 3dsmax, rendered in Octane render.

These are, as the title suggests, ribbed twisted torus sculptures, intended to appear to be created from a metal alloy (brushed nickel). These were actually quite simple to create. Just started with the powerful torus knot primitive object in 3dsmax (Autodesk decided to refer to it as a primitive shape, but it's rather complex and extremely versatile), and messed about with the parameter variables until I found something remotely interesting that I haven't seen 100x before from this primitive object. Once I discovered how to create these "ribs" in the shape, my first thought is it would make a really cool printed metal object, thus the material choice. The fabric backdrop was modeled from a simple plane object, using the Graphite modeling tools; mostly the sculpting brushes to push and pull the verts around into a cloth-like shape. I could have simply used the dynamic cloth modifier and ran a simulation, but I did it the hard way here, because I wanted control over where the folds and creases were placed.

Thanks, Jeremy. Some day I may try to get these done in metal. I'll share the .stl with you when I get a chance.

You're welcome. It's beautiful. Lots of math stuff is intricate and cool, but it takes a good eye like yours to make something really nice.
