1) Use the Spiral Gadget to create an Archimedes Spiral

2) Create your Text

3) Use the Text On Curve Tool, Text Position: On Curve, text Alignment: Align To Curve to wrap your text on the spiral vector

If you have an existing spiral you, of course, don't need the spiral gadget.

You can also do both spiral AND tapered text mapped onto a 3d model, as I did on a YOYO I made for a friend's young daughter when she won a prize at the state fair in Florida.

Hi Richard,

The Yo-Yo Tapered/Spiral Text looks great! Will you share your method of how you did that, please? (I’m guessing distort between two vectors, but perhaps you did something else?)

Here is a .dxf vector file to look at Michael. I created the spirals with the array tool I think, then used Copperplate Gothic Bold font and distort tool to squeeze the text between the pairs of curves in the spiral. I look back on some of my early Aspire tinkerings and can't help but remember something a co-worker told me long long ago when something he did worked right the first time. "Sometimes I amaze even myself ..." :lol:
