I’m trying to find the parametric equations for a helix around a helix around a circle (helix on helix on circle)
That is: I would like to start with a circle, add a helix around it and a helix around the helix.(See video)
I’m ok even if the second helix is not perfectly orthogonal to the first helix as long as we can have a simpler parametrization.
I’m ok also if the curve represents a helix around a helix around a helix.
I know the helix around a helix around and an axis is quite easy but I was not able to find a solutions for this case.
I’m interested in this parametric curve as a way to represent time and I would like to write a program to show data attached to that curve.
