I’m sure someone will appear any moment now with a nice gif and some amazing skills to make it super easy.

But in the meanwhile, I’m going to cheat and post a link to one of Aaron’s great videos - which might give you some clues as to one way you could do it.

I used curves with few segments just for illustration


Thanks a lot!
