Okey, I have a bit of a problem... I'm trying to make a spring, like a guitar-string and I want to stretch it, the problem is not to stretch it in an ordinary way like in one direction. The problem is that it have to get stretched in a circular motion around the screw on the neck of the guitar.
Can anyone please help me solve this problem, like a step by step explanation? Thx!
