Mobius pipework sculpture work in progress.
Something I started a long time ago and due to get some more input and hopefully finished soon. The original and the variation last time I picked it up a few years ago.

Except for the physical impossibility of the thing working, this is a very realistic depiction.  I am especially impressed with the water droplets forming a rough stream.  How did you do that?

Jeff,  I think I started off with a rail sweep with draft angle for the tapered water jet and I made the profile square with radius on the corners and then added twist to the rail sweep also. I used a glass material and not sure now if I used plain coverage or eroded. It looks all right from a distance but not so good close up.

I am on my notebook at present but will check the proper settings later when I am on my desktop machine.

It would work Jeff, it just becomes a static header much like a hose with a knot in. The open line tees off into a water supply.
