I have tried over and over the past few weeks to make a coiled rattlesnake! I cant find anything online and believe me using anything remotely close produces error messages galore! .

 

Any help much appreciated! 

 

started with helix to sweep no then lines no at this point im thinking in going to have to model it physically and have in 3d scanned?!?!

Helix and sweep should have worked.

 

Post what you have so far.

 

What exactly are the error messages?

Helix, then circle, 3D rotate the circle to perpendicular then sweep, this is what i get. says 3d shape but appears as lines???

For the overall design in a perfect world i want the coils to over lap a little bit so there is no space and doesn't look like a floating spring snake but shoots back self intersecting body 🙄

i attached something similar im trying to achieve
