    sketching a volute

      Hi, n00b question but I can't figure it out

      Can I start at say R30 and sketch a volute outwards to say R60 180degrees apart, with the radius increasing proportionally with angle? It's for a centrifugal water pump, same sort of shape as a turbo housing.

      At the moment the only way I can do it is lots of points at calculated coords, then spline through them, I was hoping there was a button/technique for creating a tangent spline from one reference circle to another with a smoothly varying curvature.

      Thanks
