Model a component, probably an extrusion, to do what you want.

Yes.. Load your mass into a project and use the Model-In-Place option

Radial array is your friend.   Here are some sloppy sattelite dishes we have gracing a property next to ours... just modeled one truss, and arrayed it 20 times around the dish.  Looks pretty convincing, and in the end took about 5 minutes.

Create a mass and divide its surface. Then, in a 3d view with the mass visible, use the beam tool with the pick line option. Square beams have a tendancy to twist in strange ways, but pipe beams would look great with no modification. See the attached files.
