I am trying to draw a flat spiral coil in 2D using the helix function but as soon as i use the 'flatten' command the coil becomes wiggly. is there a way to avoid this or do I have to use a different method to get a smooth spiral coil?
Perhaps I can increase the number of vertices so it looks smoother?
Thanks in advance.
So let me get this straight.
You did use height of 0 to get a spiral (not a helix).
You are using Flattten to convert the spline curve to arcs for g-code?
If this is what you are doing I have the solution around on how to control the number of arcs, but before trying to dig deep I want to make sure of the problem description.
