Hi Kent, in this video you mention that spiral loops should be avoided but not why. I was hoping you could explain why they should be avoided. Thanks!

    I suppose the main reason is that it ruins a model's edge flow. It's best that edge loops and rings be segmented to form shapes, like arms for edample. Of course if you're modeling a screw, you will have a spiraling edge loop and that's fine. But not for non-spiraling shapes.

    Does that make sense and help?
