    Spring Steel Material In SolidWorks ?

    Dave Bear

      Hi Guys,

      Can anybody with metal knowledge tell me if any of the standard metal materials in SolidWorks actually equate to 'Spring Steel'?

      I need to model the two side clips that secure my distributor cap to the distributor itself. These little clips are made out of 1mm to 1.5mm thick by 8mm wide, flat spring steel approximately, that is then curve formed. DIN references are just like speaking another language to me.

       

      Also, while we're at it, is there a equal material to 'Bakelite' in SolidWorks? (I couldn't find Bakelite!) I know I can probably get it from MatWeb but no harm in asking.

       

      Dave.
