Winch Cable wound on drum

SOLVED

Re: Winch Cable wound on drum

Thank you, David.

I have had a go using this technique and the results look OK, though i say it myself:

WINCH_CABLE_2.jpg

I used 3 graphs:

 

Radius,

Turns

and

Z_Value

 

RADIUS.jpg

TURNS.jpg

 

Z_VALUE.jpg

 

Each graph was based on a maximum extent of 100.

 

The curve was constructed using the equation:

r =evalgraph("radius",t*100)

theta = 360*evalgraph("turns",t*100)

z=evalgraph("z_value",100*t)

 

Add a VSS and Bob's your Uncle...

 

Thank you to everyone for your help.
