Blender Modeling: Double-Helix by Ci-Blender Blender Modeling: Double-Helix by Ci-Blender
Instructions on how to use the DupliFrames tool to create continuous replications of an object, the example here is a double-helix but it can also be used for things like spiral staircases, fans, springs, etc. This tutorial assumes some understanding of the IPO editor.

Great tutorial - I had attempted this before and can see what settings were wrong

Hi, thank you for the cool tutorial!
It worked fine, though I had severe problems with the rendering, since the file becomes too big, due to the subsurf levels. To smoothen the surface it is easier to simply click "set smooth".
I will start playing now, making loops and other secondary structures..... [link]

I'm a newbie, and I'm having trouble on the animating steps. My frames 1 and 11 both read "empty," and nothing seems to happen when I do the curve editor steps, nor is there any movement when I scroll through the frames. Is there some step I'm missing or a possible configuration that's giving me grief?

Nice, but fyi, the new array modifier can do the same thing, possibly easier ;)

Very usefull. Added to favs.
This is somewhat easier then duplicating and translating and rotating xD.

That was a really good tutorial. Easy to follow. I didn't realise DupliFrames could be used for things like this -- it'll be fun experimenting with them.
