Square slabs are stacked to produce a tower. Each slab can represent a floor and can be rotated around the vertical axis, thus modeling a twisted tower. Use the sliders to adjust the number of slabs, degree of twist and slab size. The "wrap" slider shows the contour line and enveloping surface of revolution.
