Working with Spinal Bends in Creo 3.0
The Spinal Bend tool bends a solid or quilt about a curved spine by continuously repositioning cross sections along a curve. If you’re not familiar with it, you can use spinal bends for creating advanced complex geometry (like the turbo scroll in the video example below) or even something as simple as modeling an engaged zip tie in an assembly. If you are already familiar with the tool, note that the UI and some capabilities have been enhanced in Creo 3.0.
