Unwrap conical helix strip

Unwrap conical helix strip

RE: Unwrap conical helix strip

Dear Maripali,
I'm weal at sheet metal- Particularly in flat pattern.
Please share some screen shots for flattening the shape.

RE: Unwrap conical helix strip

Hi PriyankPadaria,

I tried to represent that coil of sheet, but never saved. Sorry. May be later I'll make it again.
Inventor makes flat pattern automatically and it is very easy single button pushing.
When you'll done with the Sketch and Coil in the 3D Model Ribbon, return to Sheet Metal Ribbon and simply press Flat Pattern (not available in Inventor LT) button.
Be sure your coil thickness agrees to the Thickness on the Sheet Metal Default.

Thanks Dear,
But revert when you finished the same.
I need some screen shots of the same operation you DID!!!

RE: Unwrap conical helix strip

What exactly screen shots You need to get?
I'll try to share with you a movie how to make it. Enjoy and sorry for the low resolution as I am not expert of screenshots and movies maker.

[1] Equation curve in inventor
