# How can a make a torus with specific line angles tia sal2

• posted
Greetings all
I'm trying to make a torus with the lines intersecting at a certain angle
can solidworks 2006 or higher do this easily and if so how?
Here's an example of what I'm trying to do.

I'm tring to do a 3d representation of a phyllotaxis system

It's not crystal clear what you're after. I'm guessing you want to cut, or somehow represent, a double helix on a toroid shape? Can't help but if more people understand what you want ...

I guess it could be described like that but not that complex I'm just trying to change the angles of the lines that make up the torus shape.

Hello,
Have a look at this. This should do what you want if I understand you corectly.

Seems to me a simple bit of sketch geometry.

yea it does I wish I had an example on how to do it.

Yes I did and thank you for such a quick response. I opened it but it looked like a regular Torus. Did I miss something
I was trying to change the "skin angle of the torus" I made a 3D example (acrobat 7 needed for 3D)
I cheated and just layered a texture I made in Photoshop over a TORUS
If solidworks can't do it thats ok I was just trying to get exact angles. I'm still learning Solidworks so please forgive me.

I opened it. It looks like I need to do several sweeps and revoles. Is there a sequence I should do them in?
