Heres a really quick way with meshes. Make a cube, loop cut it on one axis very often and elongate along that axis. Add a Simpledeform modifier, set it to bend and a really high Angle. Then set the cubes vertices abit offsetted and rotated around the y axis slightly ( in edit mode). Heres a screenshot of a quick demo. The cubes origin is still at 0,0,0.
