I have been trying to bend a coil into a circle but i have no answer.  I made the coil fine and i have posted on here for help but no luck.  I was wondering if anybody else had any ideas?

Here's another example where I actually used the bend command on a coil.  Like I mentioned before, it yields an object that has an inconsistent cross-section.  There is also an issue with bending it in a complete circle (360 degrees).


I believe the file is 2010 format.  Drag the End of Part marker down below all features to see how I created this part.
