How to make a phone cord

1) Draw a smooth curve

2) Draw line
3) Create an array of lines using the Array-Circular command with vertical step option

4) Make a spiny curve using the Array-Curve command

5) Hide the curve and loft the spines

6) Extract edge (select the edge, press Ctrl and drag it)

7) Draw a profile curve and sweep it along spiral

8) That's all folks.... hehe...
Of course, it isn't perfect, but MoI's commands tend to be funny like Lego...
