This week in CAD Mike’s task for us to complete was a coil spring using the Helix tool. I found this task easy and managed to complete it quickly first time. Although it puzzled me to why the example on the tutorial had a bigger space between each coil, looking like a car suspension spring, where as mine was squashed and touching. I later figured this out to be because I had made a line to short making it looked wrong which I corrected in the right-hand image below. Mike also set a challenge for next week to start using ‘KeyShot’ and experiment with it to render CAD images.
