I am trying to develop better skills using Equation Driven Curves. I don't have a lot of experience in using

equations. I've attached an experimental wave spring I'm trying to create that complies with the following

dimensions; .300 ID .500 OD .010 Thick .600 Height. My current spring is not even close to what I need.

I have tried various formulas and cannot achieve the goal dimensions or appearance. I provided an image

of what I want the spring to look like. I obtained the image from the Smalley Web site. I tried their models and they

do not represent what I am trying to end up with. Most models at the Smalley site use extrusions to create a

representation. I am trying to create an exact representation of the image. This is purely an educational endeavor.

I have read various posts on the subject and found them to be very educational. I'm hoping to get some direction

on how I can achieve my goal.
