Cork screw

Hi,


I'm trying to model the screw part of a cork screw, i understand the best way to do this is using the helical sweep, however i'm not entirely sure how this function works and i can't seem to find any in-depth tutorials on the matter. Also how would i add the sharpening point to one end of the sweep?


Any info on tutorials or how to create the sweep would be highly appreciated.


Thanks


Charlie

u know a corkscrew is just a fancy spring which doesnt compress:)

least in geometry.. but not in functionality



look @ some of the files u can download of springs.

the ones with hooked ends.



then simply change the pitch and endings. one to a spike and the other to some part that then extends to a handle





not to hard once u have the model of a spring with nice rounded endings.



hope this helps
