Hi,


OK, is it, that You want to decrease the pitch of the spring at the ends, to have a couple of windings close together?

 

This is only possible in ST6 using multiple seperate helical protrusions with different pitch

 

Only with ST8 came a new curve type into Solid Edge giving You the chance to define such a spring curve in one single feature.

My intent is to close the ends of the spring (see Closed diagram).

Hi @MJL

 

 

ST8 if possible would be the best solution for that
