How to model a bent tapered spring in SolidWorks

By Gavin Peters on 30 May 13:21 2 answers 0 comments

This tutorial is to enable the creation of complex springs and the use of surfaces to support solid modelling. This technique can also be used with the circular pattern to create garter springs.
The taper on this solution is only a representation. If you know how I can change the appearance of the taper to the real word model please add to this thread. Thank you in advance.

    Here it is in video format. Sorry it is WMV, but I'm using the free version of Microsoft Encoder 4.
