I need to twist the top of a cylinder from the base such that the vertical lines become a helix. I have tried various scaling options but no luck. Apologise if this has been reported before. Cheers, Bruce
In my trial at this the cylinder gets distorted if you rotate too much cylinder gets distorted. Is there a way to rotate it and retain the shape of the cylinder? Seems to me like I saw some type of tutorial on this a long time ago but could not find it. Might have been on the SketchUcation site.
Thanks, I will check this out. Cheers, Bruce
The Spirix plugin allows you to twist any arbitrary profile using a specified number of segments:
There can be some distortion when twisting like that. Sometimes it’s better to draw a helix and use it to create the surfaces which can be copied around a centerline. I’ve done a few tutorials showing that approach although the shapes are slightly more complex than a cylinder.
