Why not simply buy one? What level of design are you looking for - sub-millimetre drawings of all the parts, including the complex splined-gear which grips the filament? Details of what wire thickness is used to make the spring? (too weak won't feed, too strong will damage the filament). If so you won't find anyone giving you that - there's a lot of work even in these small items! Why should anyone simply dish that out for free?

 

You might find ideas in thingiverse, but if you want the design, it's up to you to reverse-engineer it, if that's what you want.

Or simply design your own, why not? People here can help you with design questions & ideas, if you ask precisely.

I'm perfectly capable of designing any small spring like that one, but would need to know the outside dimensions & what forces you want at what spring-length. I also cut gears. What tooth-shape did you want? How much are you prepared to pay, if you want someone else to design (a clone of) this  for you?

 

Simply asking "I want a design" is much too vague.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
