I am new user. Hv attached part file with design table. This table works for configuration name '50' and above, however does not work below that.
Can somebody advice me whats wrong?
Thank you in advance..
in all cases where it fails the wire dia is the same as the pitch
ie the sweep self intersects or is indeterminant
you need to have a slight gap between the coils
0.002" smaller dia wire is enough if you keep the same pitch
Thanks for reponse. your suggestion did work, but I still don't understand why did it work for some numbers and not for others.
If you look the "Pitch" column in the DT, I basically copied the OD cell value as Pitch, its the same value for OD & pitch.
Was wondering why there is inconsistancy. After looking at your Gap suggestion, I feel the error I got might have been due to the fact.. larger OD solids give LINE contact at edges and for smaller sizes it may not be perfect line contact.. I am not sure.
Thanks once again..
I tried again, however '20' configuration did not work. Looks there is some inconsistancy.
