Spiral Node

My spiral node draws five types of spiral: Fermat, Square, Archimedean, Logarithmic, and Fibonacci. It outputs them as either a key set of points or as a clean bezier path. Requires make_curve.py (included).

The node has seven settings:
  - Type
  - Turns
  - Size
  - Rotation
  - Angle x 100
  - Clockwise vs. Counterclockwise
  - Output (Path or Points)

The demo includes several other handy subnetworks:
  - reverse_dir: reverses direction of a path even if it includes beziers
  - shrinking_text: turns a string into a series of letter paths of diminishing size
  - wind_letters: winds letter paths around a spiral
  - walls: creates isometric 3D walls from a square spiral
  - fib_boxes: draws a series of interlocking Fibonacci boxes

The spiral node is free for you to use as you wish in any future creations. Enjoy!
