Springs modeled in a family table


New member
Has anyone got a way to add the "hand" attribute (right hand / left hand) to a family table for springs craeted with a helical sweep?


Possibly the best way would be to add a mirror feature to the generic, and use it in the family table for left & right hands.

the coil direction in a helical is a flag and not a parameter.
So it is not possible to control it with family tables or Pro/PROGRAM.

A workaround may be to have both the left and the right
handed coil in the model and use family table or Pro/PROGRAM to
suppress either the left handed or the right handed.
