Hi all,
I am making a curve to drive a section in a swept blend. The math for the
equation was helpfully provided by some members of the forum a while ago.
This was for a spiral, which increases at a constant rate as it goes around.
The equation goes as follows:
ro=1
a=.1535
orbit=2*t
degrees=orbit*360
radians=orbit*2*3.14159
theta=degrees
r=ro*exp(a*radians)
z=t*30
Top view Side view
As you can see, the angle decreases toward the bottom. The relationship for
z is linear.
Every time I make changes to the height or the rotations, all the angles
change.
I need to adjust it for the following:
a. I want to drive the angle that the curve makes with the vertical axis
with a constant value.
b. I want to drive the curve either by the number of turns or the height.
Is there anyone who can help me?
TIA
Sip
