Description: 

This custom feature produces two types of solid body spirals: Archimedean spirals & Logarithmic spirals.


Prerequisites: 

A location to place the origin mate connector.


Troubleshooting Tips: 

  1. Turn off “Flatten Bottom” & “Cap Top”.

  2. Adjust the layer width or diameters.

  3. If the logarithmic spiral fails, try adjusting the “Spiral Magnitude”
