    Default Helix & Sweep commands

    Group;

    I just wanted to say that I love these new commands.

    You can easily create curved sloping stair stringers now.
    You also get some control grips to edit them after they're created.

    PS: 2007 looks awesome so far!

    Now I only wish I could create an elliptical helix.
    Maybe I should add it as a wish list item.

    Nice!

    I need to take another look and figure out how to do that.

    Explode the helix. Make a block of it. Insert it with different x and y scale. Explode it. Sweep it.

    Hey jimmy,

    Do we really need all this?

    The command returns:
    Specify base radius or [Diameter]
    Specify top radius or [Diameter]


    we can just choose different values, right?

    bye!

    That won't give you an elliptical helix as asked for.

    Hi all,
    Just started using 2007 & I've been wondering about modelling a curved ramp - would this be the way to go or is there a better way?
