Molecules in helix structure?

Recommended Posts



I am trying to model this?


The molecules need to be in a helix structure. How can I dynamically model this in C4D? Which I have no idea.

I understand that cloner could be the key to achieving this. But I am really not sure how to achieve this as I need to control the colour of individual sets of spheres with a different colour. Cylinders need to be linked to different spheres. Very much similar to this image. I am also trying to achieve a similar helix structure. The helix curve needs to be uniform. But I can't seem to get it right. 


Would appreciate if someone could advise and shine a light on how can I accomplish this. 


Thank you very much.
