Random Shape spring with more than 100 turns


New member
Hi everyone, I need to design random shape (combination of circle and line) of spring with closely packed turns (way more than 100). So far I could only design a shape with turns that look like a telephone cord using the Sweep Boss/Base feature. But it is limited to a max of 100 turns. I need about thousands, if not more. Any suggestion on how it can be achieved? I am a newbie and would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks ahead! Just attached a screenshot to properly explain the question. Hope it helps!
