      I have had trouble creating this spiral design as it is different than all of the spiral flow path tutorials I have found. If anyone could provide some tips and tricks, or possibly a link to a similar tutorial that would be great!

      I'm not aware of any tutorials on this.  You may be able to create in 2d and then move some points/surfaces to then connect sections that have been shifted "down".  I think i'd start with 3 (6) circles and then start linking the edges with straight lines.

      you can use following steps in spaceclaim. 


      1. create a 3d curve for first row


      2. use pull command to create that circular pipe along curve


      3. make copes of the bodies and combine them. 


      though it looks simple, you will need to be very precise on defining curve. 


      spaceclaim is easy to use and you can find many videos on youtube.
