I am trying to create a curved helix cut to give it the conduit look.. How would i do this? I've attached the CAD file.
EDITED BY MODERATOR: Moved to the Parts and Features space. Please post to the appropriate space if one exists.
Sweep the desired profile using a Helix as the path.
..the easy way, imho, is fake it and to do a Curve Pattern of the general profile/link along a Surface Sweep (image attached..)
See method VI at Threading Options. That Discussion is about creating threads, but the same principle would work for what you're trying to do.
