    Torsion spring

    Hi Guys. I downloaded a model of a double torsional spring from a free CAD model site, which is attached. I tried to model a duplicate of this, but without success. I can model the spring on its own but adding the wire form onto it, is a challenge. Any suggestions? Thanks

    2D drawing issue..

    Hi When I delete parts off my main assembly, that the parts deleted are not updated on the 2D drawings of the main assembly. This only happens on drawings of assemblies, not part drawings. Any reason for this? Thanks

    BENDING LINE DIRECTION UP OR DOWN

    Hi Is there a function in detailing of a flat pattern, sheet metal drawing, to indicate whether the bending is either "up" or "down"? I find it tedious doing it manually, and subject to human error. Thanks

    VIEW CONSTRAINTS

    Hi As an ex Solidworks user I find looking for constraints cumbersome. In Solidworks you click a part in an assembly and selected "view mates". Is there a short cut in Alibre too? (Instead of looking for the part name in design explorer in order to find the constraints) This can be time...

    Cutting sheet metal tube with a surface

    I tried that, unfortunately the cut follows a large radius not a straight cut. You have to use a sweep cut or revolve cut but this not an option in sheet metal.

    Cutting sheet metal tube with a surface

    No. Unfortunately the radius of the curve to cut varies.
