Creating Springs


New member
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?
hi there

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
