 2013.4 In reply to 2013.2 hi Grendel tanks for the model can you tell me how did you make the spiral curve off the small snail

 From: Grendel 26 Sep 2008  (5 of 17)
 I made one spiral with a large circle(c1) at the left and a smaller one at the right(c2). I then snapped a smaller spiral to the end of the first and made a small circle(c3) at the end of that. I then swept C1 & c2 along the big spiral. Then swept c2 & c3 along the small spiral.

 Hi all here is the result and how to is not perfect but ok Equiangular Spiral: this is how i have done it is: project equal lines distance on curve cone ? the nember off lines is equal to Equiangular Spiral times 8 in this case 32 line to make 4 turne ESpiral . from the top view draw lines to divide circles in 8 pices equal , start tracing from out in with (truepointcurve) every quater turne, step down one cirle, to the end be patient. projected Equiangular Spiral on dome spring created by projecting normal spiral on dome and egg EDITED: 27 Sep 2008 by BLYESS
