FCSpring Helix macro help needed

Postby samaelson » Wed May 24, 2017 8:27 am

Hi all,

I am just facing a problem creating a customized spring using great macro FCSpring Helix Variable.

As you can see on the pictures attached, I get some strange bugs where one spring part touches the other one when creating a solid.

Already tried some different settings without success.

I hope anyone out there could share some good ideas or hints.

Thanks a lot!

Best wishes

Sam

Maybe you need a special feature, go into Macros_recipes and Code_snippets, Dialog creation. My macros on Gist.github.

hi
thanks

If you want to have your circle perpendicular to your wire use Macro_Perpendicular_To_Wire Image
