SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Spiral Ornament Tutorial

Spiral Ornament: This is a blow molded ornament with spiral stripes. This model shows a clever way to generate a spiral that conforms to a bulbous shape. Another interesting modeling technique is the washout of the spiral profiles at the top and bottom of the ornament. The addition of a fillet improves the performance of the Shell by 500%.
