Creating Springs

I'm relatively new to CATIA V5R14. I've used Pro/E Wildfire 2 before and to create spring models, you would use the helical sweep function.


How would I go about making a spring model in CATIA?

if i got ur question right then this is the solution,,


go to surface and wireframe modeling workbench,,,


choose HELIX option,, choose a point and an axis to define the pitch


circle diameter and the rest in the helix dialog box....ur helical


spring is ready now


to add a surface create ur desired proflie at the start of the helix


and then sweep the profile thr'gh the helix
