The Torus


The other day I was looking through The Spaceship Handbook and began wondering about how to model a toroidal structure in RockSim (v9 not required). So here is an experiment...and it was a pain in the butt. I used multiple thin tube fins of varying diameter and thickness. I uses a thickness of 0.1" which still makes for a rough contour. Now I wish I'd made a space station. I'm not up for recreating another torus, but maybe I'll try using what I have.
