Description

I made this spring to take the place of a steel wave spring in a customer's printed assembly. It works well for a functional demonstration for their prototype. I call it a “flower spring” but it is really a form of a belleville or finger spring.
(Take precautions not to burn yourself)
• Print the flat pattern and dies.
• Heat up the spring flat pattern until pliable, do not melt it.
o I used a heat gun set at 180°C, a hair dryer may work fine.
• Place the spring flat pattern onto the lower die
• Press the upper die down onto the spring to form it while it cools.
