Tutorial: how to model a spiral in Solid Edge (example 2)

Small

In order to get our spiral, we can use the advanced options of the helix command as shown in the following

  1. Step 1:

    first draw the spiral cross section and a very short axis (I used 0.1mm length for the axis)

  2. Step 2:

    Then open the option window of the helix and set the right parameters

  3. Step 3:

    you must select a draft method for the helix. In this example I used the 2 radius option and I set the final radius much larger than the initial radius

  4. Step 4:

    and here is the result
