Tutorial: how to model a spiral in Solid Edge

The spiral is modeled with a sweep command.

  1. Step 1:

    First you must draw the spiral path on a sketch. Be careful that the different arcs are connected and have a tangent constraints one to the other.

  2. Step 2:

    Then draw the spiral cross section in a sketch normal to the spiral path (use the appropriated option when you position the sketch plane).

  3. Step 3:

    Use the sweep command with the single path option.

  4. Step 4:

    Then select the path first and the cross section next.
