Complex model workthrough question

Hi everyone, I was wondering if I can model the shapes demonstrated in the link by MOS Architects, all with Rhino! Do I need a plug-in for that? I want to 3D print this afterwards, and it seems really confusing and complex for me.

I can understand that it has a cross section swept along a curve. But the curly edges seems the most difficult part. I am also trying to figure out how this shapes and be interwoven into each other similar to the images and lie upon each other…

I appreciate any help on this!

You could try deforming the swept profiles using some mesh modifiers in Grasshopper… if you are familiar with it?

The weaverbird plugin may have some useful tools as a starting point.

Thanks David. Unfortunately, I am not familiar with grasshopper and I am trying to it with Rhino tools possibly!
