Hi All,

 

I have a potential customer that ask me on how to create a wave spring.

 

Is it I need to use some equation in order to create a cylidrical wave shape? Please advices

l typically create the cross sections at every peak and valley of the wave and then create a loft between them in ordered mode to maintain the links to the driving sketches.

If you have to make a wave spring with several turns you might use a Curve_By_Table to drive helical wavy sketches.  If need be you can also add shim (ie flat) top and bottom faces.

 

Here's one I made earlier.............
