Is there a way to quote a spring in Spaceclaim?
When drawing a spring I would like to get the pitch, so I make a sectional view but it is impossible to hold on to the drawing. I wanted to extract the curves passing through a middle plane but it provides me with splines and not circles.
Moreover it would be interesting to be able to mark the axis of a spring without having to draw an axis by hand.

Let me look into it and get back to you.

If you take a section view of the spring, the cross section will appear as spline since the spring profile is following a spiral curve. One way to address this issue is to create another circle sketch at the sectional location and use that circle (instead of the cross sectional profile of the spring) to create dimension. Another option would be to use the Note tool and manually specify the spring parameters.
Regarding automatic identification of spring axis, I would suggest you to post it in the Ideas section.
