thanks Alan,

I had no idea that the sweep node is that mighty.

The profile input (circle and locus) looks really abstract to me, I try understand the mechanism behind it.

Its a pretty simple item, as with normal sweeping the sweep looks for a centre and it is the node, so all you have to do is to move the node out and you get a bigger radius and the offset just does what it says.

Have a look at the sweep items in this post.


In the VW file you can adjust the setting to obtain different shaped springs by just changing the sweep input.

I never thought of a shell as a spiral. But that is the result of entering the variables : 1, 10, 1, 10, 30.
