I am trying to make a model of coil cord cable (looks like phone cable) in the autodesk inventor10. I know to make a model of the coil cord when it is straight, but how can i make the coil cord model when it is folder. Any help will he up much appreciated.
Their is a way to "Fudge a look-a-like", but its is only a Fudge as it
squashes the coil out of true shap.
Make a coil in the straight length,
Create a new sketch and draw a line through the coil that "touches the model" (Important, or it won't work)
Use the bend tool command.
Again, this is only a quick "look-a-like"
Hope this helps
