Is it possible to create a helix that follows a path? I can make a heater bar, as used in an electric heater, but can I make the heater bar, which is a helix, follow a spiral? So, it's a coiled coil.
Yes. Draw the required spiral. Now draw the profile for the coil slightly away from the spiral. Finally use the sweep option and use twist along path, set the options turns and give number of turns.
Here is a videos as example: SolidWorks Twist Along Path
Thanks for that, looks like I understand it okay. I'll have a go at it first thing tomorrow.
