Creating the BUNDLE TOWER, NEW YORK by FOA

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had any insight on how you would make these towers?

Currently my script looks like this

However, the towers don’t look like, they look like this plan. Kind of like they are mirrored then duplicated around a central point.


I’m not entirely sure how to get that to happen…

Any help would be great!!
I attached my script if it would help…

Hello
I understand that you followed a tutorial (not great at the end).

So let’s do some basic trigonometry.
Here I see that this structure is based on polygon with even number of sides. I will say that circles are tangent and that there are some straight section connected smoothly (blend).
So let’s say circle center is on the polygon, this give the position of the point like that

The number of sides is even

The make the points following the equations


Then make the 2 lines and the blend between them

Then joining the curves, making a pipe, some rotation, a symetry and a polar array, you habe your first part.

The second part is a bit not parametric but as you just need 3 parts.
