i am modeling a power cord coil, i know how to make a normal helix, but i dont want it to be a perfect circle. is there a way to make a helix that is an oval shape?
One way is to draw the shape you want, extrude it as a surface, then make a helical surface and get an intersection curve between the two surfaces, then use that curve for the sweep. There should be lots of examples of that technique around.
just found this thread, pretty good concept
This concept might work
