Inventor 101: Coil Command

Tips & Tricks

Some mechanical designs remain relatively blocky and basic in terms of their design structure. However, as you start developing more complex projects, you’ll likely come to a point where you need a coil or spring inside of your design. That’s where Inventor’s coil command comes into play.

Learning how to utilize this tool will allow you to take a simple dimensioned circle through a variety of constraints, and build that sketch into a functional coil. Learn more about utilizing the coil command in the short Inventor 101 video below!
