How to Create a Torsion Spring

Hello Community,

 

How do you creat a torsion spring with varying end postions e.g 90 DEG, 270 DEG etc.

180 degree is no problem as that is the default setting in SE ST8. 

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Good morning,

 

I recently created some torsion springs but I did them on my own vs. using Solid Edge's library.  Basically, I created a cylinder to represent the body and then made some legs using round protrusions,  In my case, they were 90° springs in both left and right hand versions.  Also, I purchase the springs, then modifythem by bending the legs.  I created a family of parts for the unmodified spring, deflected spring and modified spring.  It work's pretty well.  If you don't want to go the FOP route, you could probably do a part copy of your master spring, then use move faces in ordered to accomplish a similar task.
