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

The outside straight bits you can do by putting a plane on the end of your spring, doing a project to and extruding.
The connecting wire could be done with a sweep

HI Kanon,
I can't open your package because I'm still using V24 Alibre Expert. I can't view anything newer than that version. However, I also had to do battle with a spring with ends on it. Not sure if it's
anything like you need but feel free to slice and dice the part and see how I finally did it.

Good luck,
Oldfox
