Question Gutters for 12-sided house?

I live in a "round" house. Truly, it has 12 approximately 10 ft walls on the outside. This home has no rain gutters and I want to install them. I'd really like to tackle this myself...is there any way to make gutters go around the angels (120 degrees or so) or do I need to call a seamless gutter place?
I know I could have 1 gutter with 1 downspout for each side, but seems extreme and ugly.
Thanks!!

Welcome to the forums

You could do this yourself but I find the product to be better from a gutter installer than what can be bought in the stores, so I would hire this done

You still want to do it yourself, the installation is no different than any other house except you're cutting at angles other than just 90 and 45. If you do it yourself, how many downspouts do you envision having and how would the gutters pitch around the house?

Sorry, apparently a little scatter-brained this afternoon, I never thought about that very important step....

Joints

I can visualize how to join the backs and the bottoms, but I am stuck on how to do the front.

Well...can't remember how the off the shelf metal corners are put together. I guess with vinyl you could cut them, then solvent or heat weld somehow?
