Hello All, A little geometry lesson requested:
Does anyone know how to draw a simple 2D spiral-- I'm thinking like the spirals of a traditional electric stove/cook-top.
If TurboCAD has the tool do draw it automatically, I assume it is in the most recent Pro and/or Platinum versions, and not in Deluxe or Designer.
Optimally, I would like to learn the arithmetic and geometry behind it, and learn a method of applying those so that I can draw a 2D Spiral in version-19-Deluxe, using basic 2D tools, including the Construction Tools.
For this example, I would like to specify: The overall "diameter" to be 200mm, and the spacing between the "360Â°-intervals" to be 10mm.
In addition to advising on how to draw it in 2D using basic TurboCAD tools, can someone explain how to create it in real life. I'm sure "they've" been drawing, producing, spiral objects for hundreds if not thousands of years, so it seems that it has to be able to be done.
Thanks for your interest in this Topic. -Alvin
If a tool does indeed exist in the most recent TurboCAD Pro and/or Platinum versions, if someone wants to-- just for kicks and reference-- post an image of a 2D Spiral they created using one of those TurboCAD tools and an explanation of how they created it... that'd be cool.
