Super ! Very easy and very "intuitiv" way to make spirals. Thank you for that ! Très facile à comprendre et une façon très intuitive de réaliser des spirales. Merci

Thanks Kixum! The whole "Length zero" thing threw me at first. DOH!)

Thanks. I started with a triangle instead of a diamond and got good results. Fiddling with the "distance to axis" (the correct value isn't intuitive) gave me what I wanted.

Cool tutorial, easy to follow. The only thing that threw me was dragging the poly in step 6, I was still in Draw Poly mode and kept drawing another poly, once I selected the move tool I was off and running. Cheers! :)
