pitch in a var sec sweep spring


New member
i know you can alter the number of rotations which will alter the pitch as a whole but ...............

is it possible to alter the pitch in a variable section sweep in just specific sections of the trajectory??

For a Variable Section Sweep you must select your trajectory, using a curve or edge from a prior feature.

I am assuming you mean a helecal sweep. If so then you just select VARIABLE from the attributes. It will ask you for a start and an end pitch, then it will show you a graph which you can use to control the pitch curve.
