Cylindrical Maze Design Help

Hi all! Really interested to hear your thoughts on this project. I've made this cylindrical maze on my 3d printer in multiple variations but I've been dying to do it in wood on the Shapeoko 3.

I know there have been a thousand posts on 4th axis for shapeoko, but I don't believe there is functioning plug-and-play option for that yet? Correct me if I'm wrong, please, I can spend more money :lol: .

I'm specifically trying to think of OTHER ways this can be achieved... Cutting into 4-8 slices, and gluing together after carving? Cutting multiple curved "faces" and affixing to a square rod?

I'm specifically concerned that the recesses are of equal depth and the ridges are of equal height/angle proportional to the center. IDEAS? Have any of you attempted something like this with success?

Can't really help here beyond the various wiki links, but for folks who find this via a search, c.f., the other iteration of this question:
