-model>primitive>get>curve>spiral
-with start radius and end radius same, with hieght value higher than 0, makes spring
-extrude etc

nice. however, i want to make it alot of cycles.. i did boost it up to 10000, but it doesn't seem having any effect. so i tried to merge the curves to get more cycles.

How do you merge them.

-up your "Usubs" by hundreds and "end angle" into the thousands, works here
-or to answer 2nd merge curves and make sure the last curve angle lines up with duplicate of next curves (why xsi doesn't have procedural copy or duplicate :( I don't know )
