Techniques - Heater Coil for Cylindrical Furnace

This was requested for a project.  The technique involves wrapping a sketch onto a cylinder but it also highlights a lot of techniques in sketching.  I tried to add annotation to the video to help understand the process.

 

This is the simple version.  This can be taken to the next level with a number of options to make this more universal but for the average user, this is more than sufficient to have a sustainable model.  In reality, the wire would not lay on a cylindrical plane.  It would traverse in many orientations and the level of effort can be exponential complicated very quickly.

 

Of course, there is a next level as to how to exit the wires from the chamber but that is another level.  YouTube has a 10 minute limit for most of us

 

Always ask yourself what the end goal is and see if this video will help you better understand a few basic techniques for making robust sketches.

 

 

Here's a bonus - "Fire Red"
