I have been trying to model this piece but can't figure out what the heck Pro E is doing with my model. Here is what it should look similar too....

but this is what it ends up like...

the first image's equation is:

r = 26400 + 564

theta = t * 2

z = -(2.548040 * theta + 19056.2274 + (.06 - .000023809524 * theta) * 564 )



the equation should be:

r = 26400 + 564

theta = t * 2

z = -(2.548040 * theta + 19056.2274 + (.06 - .000023809524 * 26400 * theta) * 564 )



but for some reason, pro e doesn't like that equation. the added factor is the radius, from s=r*theta.



let me know if any of you can help. =)
