Here’s my own entry:

I’ve got one rendering right now. Everyone, hold onto your pants!

That thing is awesome!!! I just made a render of it, it looks great! How did you keep the rows so neat?

The way I did it is

  1. spinned a dot to get a ring
  2. Extruded and scaled slightly; repeat; --to get multiple concentric rings forming a disk
  3. Ctrl + / Rotate / 1 degree; repeat; --to have the ribbons slightly twisting
  4. Rotated to a side view and…
    Ctrl - / Rotate (between 0.5 and 1.5 degrees) / G to move; repeat.
    to have them curve around.

Essentially, it boils down to iterations of Ctrl + or Ctrl - and simple operations. There must be a better way of doing it but I’m lazier to learn new things than I am to do things the hard way :wink:
