Is there a way to make a screw like object spiral down into a point? Basically I want a screw modifier on an object and as it spirals it gets smaller and tighter until it makes a point.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, you could try adding a lattice modifer after screw, and use the lattice to scale it on one side (until it makes a point) $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Aug 2 '17 at 15:23

Proportional Edit your final product after applying other modifiers.

enter image description here

  • Proportional Edit shown in Blue, Scaled XY with Cursor Pivot.
  • Note the rotation scale mode is set to cursor and cursor is placed carefully.
  • No effort was taken for Artistry
  • Please improve and suit to taste
  • I prefer the Curve Modifier answer. Greatly.
