I would like to draw a spiral. The inner 'circle' should be about 3"
in diameter. Each ring should be offset from the inner ring by 1/4".
The outer diameter should be 6".
I am new to AC and would like to have the commands to do this so I
learn from it. If you send me the drawing I am not learning anything.
I realize that these are not circles and my use of the word diameter
is incorrect but I did not what word to use.
Thanks for any and all help.
You will need to use a Lisp routine, such as Spiral.lsp.
You then need to know how to get it into AutoCAD and use it.
It will draw a 2-dimentional spiral or, as the article describes, you can
produce a 3D image.

Thanks again for the help.
I do have some spirals as jpg files that I can increase and decrease
in size as needed.
I am trying to teach myselc AC LT and thought that I could makemy own
I use them as patterns for scrollsawing.
I print the spiral and paste it to a piece of wood.
Using the scrollsaw with the table tipped at a small angle I then make
a continous line along the spiral.
Now I have a wooden spiral.
Because of the angle when I push the outer rings up they only go so
I then glue the rings together in the pushed up position and I makes a
small snack or candy dish.
Once again thanks for your help.
