Hi

Gambit offer a function where you can sweep a edge along a another edge with curvilinear shape!

my friends,

i have managed to create a helix pipe using Gambit. the method i use is:

firstly, create a helix thread;

secondly, create a cross section whose type is triangle or circular or any other types you will choose. it should be perpencicular to the helix thread, i think perpendicularity is important because we can find that in the helix pipe, the cross section is perpendicular to the helis thread. this step can be realized by creating another system coordinate.

finally, choose the "sweep real faces"úČ(typeerpendicular, option:twist) in volume of gambit. in this step, you should compute the angle of your helix pipe. you can find something helpful to you in gambit help.

lucky!
