Swirl Tool


Swirl Tool
WildTools deserves a few tools that walk on the wild side. The Swirl tool duplicates selected object in a spiral.

Things like this.

The Swirl tool duplicates selected objects in a spiral.

You can scale and rotate the objects, scale the line weights and blend colors.

The tool is limited to a maximum of 1500 duplications in the Distribute mode, 0.5 degree in Repeat mode and to 450 windings.

Because of the risk that you will start a new spiral-of-spirals, the tool falls out when you complete a spiral.

The Swirl tool will swirl bitmaps, but this can be agonizingly slow, even on the fastest machines, so the tool will only draw a rectangle as you move the mouse.
