This time let us learn how to make a helical spring in CATIA. Have a look at this video.
@ISHAN TOPRE • 06 Jun, 2011 In this video, you will notice that:
1.You need to operate on two different planes, mutually perpendicular to each other.
2.Always bear in mind that if you are giving a profile curve to follow, the it must have the "starting" point on it.
3.You have to choose the wireframe module after you you are done with sketcher. Go for the helix command in the "Wireframe" tool bar. See various options and help your self.
4. After you have made a sketch to follow the wireframe spring which you have just made, go for the "Rib" command to follow that helix by toggling to "Part design module".
5. You will find Rib command it the normal pad pocket tool bar.
6. As I have shown in, you can have any regular or irregular cross section for the spring.
If you have any doubt regarding any aspect, feel free to discuss. 😀
@ISHAN TOPRE • 06 Jun, 2011 See these image.
This one shows the cross section.
