How do I taper a coil in Inventor?

By atooltoscream on 22 Aug 11:54 3 answers 0 comments

I'm trying to figure out how to draw a coil so it starts as a shape and ends at a point. Examples of what I mean would be a sheep's horn or the business end of a corkscrew. Any idea?

    Hi there

    Nuno has presented a very nice tutorial...

    However, if you want to be more precise on how the profile is tend to a point you can use the "Loft" command as it can be seen below...

    Nothing major just to have in mind an alternative option in case that you don't have the right value for the tapper field in "Sweep" command...
