To Create an Advanced Spring
1. Click Refine Model > Spring. The Spring Definition dialog box opens.
2. Enter a name for the spring, or use the default name.
3. Select Advanced as the spring type.
4. If you did not select geometric references before clicking Refine Model > Spring, select references on your model to specify a location for the spring. The References collector displays the valid selections.
5. Define stiffness properties for the spring. You can select a previously-defined stiffness property from the drop-down list, or you can click More to define new stiffness properties.
6. Specify the Y direction of your spring.
7. Enter an additional rotation if you want a value other than zero. If you do not enter a value, the software assumes a value of zero.
8. Click OK to complete the spring definition.
