Drawing a coil

Tagged: ,

      Hi, everyone:

      I'm drawing a coil with rectangle cross section in Maxwell, I didn't import the CAD model since I need the coil be parametered.

      I used "sweep along path", while the coil "twisted" with non-regular pattern as the pictures below.

      Is there any way to build a coil which each layer of sections are aligned or parallel?

      you can use the inbuilt UDP operation for this.
      See the below screenshot. After you select the rectangular helix you will see a popup window with variables. You can enter the values as needed and click OK.

      Regards Navya
