I’ve been wondering how to make something similar to this too. I think it looks great. Similar to a design for a coffee table I saw on this site somewhere?
Personally I use Inventor, but any 3D CAD program would work. I hear Fusion is good, been meaning to play around with it actually. As a beginner drawing the components wouldn’t be too hard. just assembling them together correctly might be tricky.
Thinking about it, it wouldn’t be necessary to fully model this is 3d first. Assuming you want to use the same curve, you could cut a load of overlong identical pieces (drawn in 2D) and then trim them down. looks like in this piece, as they go “around the clock” they go up 50mm offset then down again? something like that?
The curvy bits could fit around any space defined by a couple of rings or set of shelves or whatever? Instead of a ring it might be stronger to use a multi sided polygon? a dodecagon maybe? wouldnt look as organic that way tho.
To get it looking just right I would probably cut a couple of angled wedges to use as spacers. this would help ensure each piece was fixed in the right spot.
Imitation is the greatest form of flattery…
