Variable Winding Angle? Cone Formation

Hi, I am comtemplating purchasing an x-winder to do some prototyping and I wanted to make sure the system will meet our needs.  In the x-winder software, are you able to vary the wind angle within a single layer? We are wanting to produce a cone by having more material buildup on one side of the mandril than the other.  The end goal is to have a tube with a uniform diameter but a cone shaped interrior.  Thanks in advance for the help!

  • I am part of a rocketry team who has extensively used the xwinder for parobolic, von karmen, and conical nosecone manufacture, so yes variable geometry cones are possible on this machine.
