Helical 3d Shape

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Trying to think of a way to create a continues helix shape based on a 3D model. I need it for creating a continues build of a l using x-particles as endless toothpaste buildup.

 

Thanks.

I think the hard part is creating one spline that follows the shape of your model. After that, I would guess you make a Helix long enough to be Spline Wrapped along that spline. Make sure to set it as Keep Length as to not stretch or squash the helix.

Not sure what you are really after, but you are mentioning toothpaste. Here is a very similar setup, it can possibly help you to get what you are after :)

Here's an example of what I described above. Seems like you could do some interesting things with this.
