h = Height required for Helix to complete
one revolution about the Cylinder
c = Circumference of Cylinder r = Radius of Cylinder C = Circumference of Baluster Circle R = Radius of Baluster Circle |
If the Helix does not make a complete revolution the formula still returns the same Baluster Radius.
For a quarter of a revolution through 90°:
90° ÷ 360° = 1/4 The term 2π in the Helix Run is replaced by 2π ÷ 4 = π/2 The Helix Rise = h/4 The Cylinder Radius r remains the same. |
