Coiling Problem

By Alec Petersen on 02 Aug 21:22 1 answer 2 comments

I am trying to recreate the scroll of a viola based on one that was done by --Ricardo Espinosa -- and I got the shape and coil specifications exactly. When I tried to create it you can see the error message I got. What if I need a coil that self intersects to make the model for heavens sake? Any advice on how to make this differently or if there is just some adjustments I can make would be very useful.
