RS-Helix is a software for calculating compression springs, tension springs and torsion springs.
With RS-Helix any metal springs can be designed from a wire material and sheet metal with the integrated spring designer.

Standard springs:
Standard springs (compression springs, tension springs and torsion springs) can be calculated, recalculated and constructed in three dimensions.
The ease of use is particularly useful when entering requirements for the standard springs.
After each entry, the missing requirements are automatically checked and the results are calculated in advance.
Requirements that are no longer necessary due to the previous entries are hidden.

Wire form springs:
Wire form springs and stamped and bent parts can be comfortably designed three-dimensionally without CAD knowledge.

RS-Helix is ​​offered in two versions:
'RS-Helix Lite' and 'RS-Helix Pro'
'RS-Helix Lite' can be downloaded and installed free of charge after registration.
'RS-Helix Pro' is chargeable and can be ordered after registration.

- Open, change and save calculations and 3D CAD models as project data
- Numerous templates and examples are available as saved project data and can be loaded and adapted
- Templates are e.g. Available for spring clips, spring clips, snap rings, snap clips, toggle spring, retaining spring, positioning plug, expanding plug, return spring, curved flat spring, compression spring, tension spring, leg spring, double leg spring and much more.

The special:
The special thing about RS-Helix is ​​easy handling and comprehensive calculation, quick and easy 3D CAD construction, presentation, printout of result values.
In addition, all 3D CAD models can be exported to numerous popular CAD export formats, vector formats and raster image formats.
RS-Helix facilitates and supports the calculation and creation of standard springs and wire form springs.

The following should be emphasized:
- Immediate calculation when entering spring requirements (on-the-fly calculation)
- Immediate analysis of the input values ​​and masking of unnecessary input values ​​
- quick, easy and complete determination of spring values ​​
- quick and easy 3D CAD construction of spring models
