Just a quick experiment. This was the process:

  • Create a curve
  • Divide the curve at a number of segments
  • Create parallel planes(frames) at the division points
  • Rotate each of the created planes at different angle
  • Add controls for the spinning factor(the angle)
  • Get the components of the planes(we need them)
  • Draw line in each plane using it’s local coordinate system
  • Draw two circles, parallel to the line(at the two ends of the line)
  • Add controls for the radius of the circles
  • Loft surface
