General Usage Instructions
How to use:
Use the tool in the same way as the sweep- or pipe-tool in Autodesk® Fusion 360™.
First, draw a curve:
Then go to SOLID / CREATE / Create Sketch and select a Plane (screen-center)
Now you are in Sketch-Mode. Go to CREATE / line and draw a curve by arcs and lines or use the spline tool.
Start the Script by typing 'SHIFT S' and selecting Cord_Coil_Rope and Run.
The tool offers three modes:
Coil-Mode draws one wire around your curve, Cord-Mode two and Rope-Mode four wires.
'Thickness' is the strength of each wire and 'Broadness' is the Strength of the whole Coil/Rope.
'Rotations' describe how often each wire spirals around your curve.
Do your selections and press OK.
Finish Sketch (left side of the Menu)

Open Fusion 360 and go to TOOLS menu
Go to ADD-INS->'Script and Add-ins' and choose the green + on the left of MySkrips.
