Assalamu’alaikum. Hi guys.

My name is Widhi Muttaqien from Expose Academy.

In this tutorial video, I want to show you how to create “spiral columns” or also known as “twisted pillars” quickly and easily in Blender 2.8x. Besides that I also cover how to use real-world measurement unit, how to optimize the modeling result for the use at different application scenarios, and I also mention in this video a bug in the Screw” modifier and how to work around the bug.

The techniques you learned in this video will be applicable for creating any types of spiral-like objects such as ropes, cords, candles, furniture decorations, cables, candies, etc.

I hope this short tutorial can be helpful. Happy Blending!
