    Default Trying to draw a coil in 2D

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Is there any easy way to draw a simple coil shape? Just a curved line like one would find in a spring. I have tried using the spline tool, but the line ends up wonky, and if I used the arc tool with straight lines, it looks too regimented. Am I banging my head against a brick wall here, or is there an easier way?
