Wave Washer: To begin, the planes are created as simple offset planes. The sketches are created using a Derived Sketch that is an exact copy of the parent sketch. Curves are added using a 3D Sketch and a Spline. The profile for the Sweep is a rectangle with center line from midpoint to midpoint. The ‘thickness’ of the metal should be perpendicular to the main face all around the perimeter. Curve 1 and Curve 2 are created as a Curve through Reference Points,using the Closed Curve check box.
