Drawing an accurate curve/tight circle

Hi there,

I am trying to replicate this shape as curves

but am struggling to replicate the tight circle shape and keep getting kinks in the curves like this

is there a way i can create an accurate tight curve shape? I have tired using the spiral curve but it still doesnt give me the best results. below is the best I have managed to achieve. Thanks in advance

Hello - one way is to use a series of tangent 90 degree arcs of decreasing radius - you can do this with the Arc command > Start > Direction >End and SmartTrack enabled - track the end of the arc on the 45 degree tracking line.

This does not make a ‘true’ spiral of course.

The Sprial tool, with the Flat option will also work here.
