which thread. I did not see your posting.
Are you talking about the f_helix?
Again neither param.inc nor f_helix let you
play with the origin of the helix.
Like I said to mike williams,
you cannot put thesee helices on a lattice.
I can send you the image of the helices on
a square lattice but did not put the sinus
in effect.

thanks
