Rectangular helical sweep feature

Re: Rectangular helical sweep feature

I have a real use case for its application - to model a flex geometry wrapped on a rectangular staright/tapered plastic insert.

With further expansion of the approach, the slant angle I added to the sweep section allows me to produce both straight and tapered geometries. This can be converted to a sheetmetal model and can be flatten to show its flat geometry !

That is a very interesting way to use the origin string

Now you are just showing off

Re: Rectangular helical sweep feature

...now put a parallel one outside this one.

Use the second one to orient the "blade".

This will clean up the corners somewhat.

Re: Rectangular helical sweep feature

Here is a solution using just three features.

It works also as conical version.

It was created with Creo 3.0. If you can`t open it I also can provide Creo 2.0.

I like your approach to this issue....

Re: Rectangular helical sweep feature

Very nice solution!

Re: Rectangular helical sweep feature

Hi, could you please provide the Creo 2 version? Thanks.

Re: Rectangular helical sweep feature

I guess you deserve one after all that work
