Excepts the 'PopUp'- and the 'Switch Case'-Node all nodes are native.

I also created two wrappers:

Nice, thanks for the additional nodes.

Another way to make a spring is to use the sweep node.

thanks Alan,

I had no idea that the sweep node is that mighty.

The profile input (circle and locus) looks really abstract to me, I try understand the mechanism behind it.

Its a pretty simple item, as with normal sweeping the sweep looks for a centre and it is the node, so all you have to do is to move the node out and you get a bigger radius and the offset just does what it says.

Have a look at the sweep items in this post.


In the VW file you can adjust the setting to obtain different shaped springs by just changing the sweep input.
