Tutorial: How to make a Working Spring.


This is another tutorial for making same spring in NX.
model is uploaded Spring working
I hope you will like this.

  1. Step 1:

    This is the working spring made in NX

  2. Step 2:

    1. First of all, open new part.
    Use revolve commend on front (xz) plane.And Draw sketch as in drawing.

  3. Step 3:

    2. Make revolve in 180 degree in direction as in image.
    Save the part at a specified place

  4. Step 4:

    3. Open new assembly. and Add new part, which you saved before.
    Select absolute Origen from placement, positioning section. And apply.

  5. Step 5:

    4. This will look like this.. and Make a fix type assembly constrain to the part you added recently.

  6. Step 6:

    5. Now add another same part, but now select by constraints in placement, positioning section. And apply.

  7. Step 7:

    6. Make a concentric relation between the edges of both parts as shown in image.

  8. Step 8:

    7. Add another same component, and apply.

  9. Step 9:

    8. Select two highlight edges for make another concentric relation.

  10. Step 10:

    9. This will be maybe looking like this... doesn’t need to worry.
    Use move component commend and select by constrains in type section.

  11. Step 11:

    10. Now drag and drop the upper component as position as shown in fig. and click apply

  12. Step 12:

    11. Now add another same part and make concentric relation as done before, if required use move commend again to position like Spring.

  13. Step 13:

    12. New to add is the parallel relation between these two highlights parts. As shown in fig. and after select both click apply.

  14. Step 14:

    13. Add another part and make concentric relation, same as before.
    Add the parallel relation between these two highlight parts. As shown in fig. and click apply.

  15. Step 15:

    14. Do same process and relations for number of parts as in fig.
    This will not be same as in fig. that will be correct in last part.

  16. Step 16:

    15. Add last part.

  17. Step 17:

    16. Make concentric relation.

  18. Step 18:

    17. Now add a parallel relation to the centre axis of first and last part you added recently, as shown in fig.

  19. Step 19:

    18. You can add other small revolved parts with concentric relation to edge of the spring ends.
    This will be the final part you make.

  20. Step 20:

    19. Now you can move the spring to required position as this is expended position.
    Model is completed for used in assembly.
