Pattern: helix

Parameter input form


  • Ends 1 & 2 dimensions: External
  • Development precision [divisions]: 96
  • DXF text height: 2.5
  • Input and drawing file units: Millimeters

Some tips related to this pattern::

  • Helixes are not developable surfaces.
  • Cold deformation in the Z direction is considered, (perpendicular to the sheet metal surface), without thinning nor stretching of the metal sheet.
  • The bending is linear. The helix pitch should be less than the outside diameter.
