I am looking for a way to place points equidistantly along an Archimedes spiral according to arch-length (or an approximation) given the following parameters:
Max Radius, Fixed distance between the points, Number of points
I have been lurking around on this site for a few days and have found a lot of great advice but am struggling with the syntax of some of the proposed responses (not a native coder but I have had small exposure to Python and Matlab).
This example 1 seems to be exactly what I am looking for but I am just struggling with the code, it is not clear to me what variables are used or how the program executes.
My goal is to use a spreadsheet (MS Excel) to drive a solid modeling program to generate a hole pattern per the parameters above.
