Totally agree with Cavernmech. Twisted spokes are pointless and make a poor wheel. Used to do these Snowflake pattern wheels for young jumping tigers many years ago but stopped doing them as they were laterally not very strong. If you landed with the wheel anything other than vertical, they pretzeled. If you are determined to have a go, add about 5mm to each spoke length to allow for the twist.
