Hi Bruce, no I don’t have any Mold design tutorials. I will let you know when I do have a tutorial about mold design.
Good,but can you just show how to mate a spring inside a hole if you know the method.
Hi Prasanna, thanks for your message. If you want to mate a spring inside a hole I recommend you to mate the center planes of the spring instead of the spring itself. Just click at the Center Plane of the Spring, select the Coincident Mate and select the Center Plane of the hole. Let me know if you’ve any other questions.

How to flatten the 2 tips so that the spring placed vertically on a plane by touching all the points of the surface?
Add a Boss/Base Revolve at the ends of the spring to make the last twist constant and use the Extruded Cut feature to flatten the surface.

Het afvlakken van zo’n veer, heb je daar ook een tutorial voor.
Bedankt voor je compliment. Ik heb geen tutorial voor het afvlakken van de veer maar ik raadt je aan om dit te doen m.b.v. een sweep aan het uiteinde van de veer. Deze kan je vervolgens d.m.v. een Cut Extrude afvlakken.
so be goooooooooooooooooooood,thank you

Hope this helps!
