Is it possible to design a coil spring in Solidworks? I do not need any forces, just a simple 3D model
Create a helix and sweep the cross section. Here are some video tutorials.
yes it can do.you can create spiral as attached pic. if you want 3D object please create cross profile perpendicular to starting point of spiral then sweep.
I made a macro to do this: http://solidmentor.com/modules/wiwimod/index.php?page=AutomatedSpringMacro&back=Macro%20Library
Make sure to put the template in the correct directory.
