Is this what you want? I made it by sweep a rectangle with a helix. If yes, I can upload the model.
I have a problem, I get the following message: "model created with a later version of comsol"
could you tell me how to make the helix? have you any tutorial?
First is create a rectangular in a work plane.
Second, make a parametric curve to represent the helix curve, like (cos(4*s),sin(4*s),s).
Last, sweep the rectangular with parametric curve. Pay attention to uncheck the "twist compensation".
your explanation was very successful, check it.
But I have other problem, i cant do difference between a cylinder and the agitator because disappears the figure.
I tried make a difference with each element and I realized that it can be for the sweep. I m not sure, have you any idea.
P.D: Im doing a reactor and i want use rotating machinery model
Thanks in advance,
