Finned Tube Coil Shaped


New member
Hi Everyone,

I need to make a finned tube in a coiled shape using Solidworks. A picture is attached to clarify what I am trying to make. I have tried using a swept surface around a spiral curve, but due to the 100 revolution limit in Solidworks I cannot create my desired shape. Any help would be greatly appreciated.High-Quality-Coiled-Aluminum-Finned-Tube.jpg
