Rotation of 3D Equation Curve

Hi,

 

Can anyone please advise how I can rotate the 3D Coil via the Equation Curve in the attached picture please. I realise that in an assembly I could rotate the finished coil but I am working in a Top Down Assembly within a part file and I cannot see any other way to rotate the coil so that it terminates in line with the horizontal axis i.e.. -42.022 deg.

 

Any thoughts please?

 

Many thanks.

Rdyson,

 

You have just made my day!

 

I have been trying to solve this problem for over 2 days now to no avail.

 

So thank you so much.

Hi again,

 

Is it also possible to rotate the starting position also?

 

Do I edit the start position in essence from the end position by specifying the degrees of rotation?

 

Thank you once again, your help has not only saved me days of wasted time but produced a better model in the process.

Might take some experimenting.
