Spring deformation in Motion Analysis


New member
I want to be able to deform a spring that is situated between two parts. The catch here is that I can't use Animation or Basic Motion simulation because I need to be able to define solid body contacts, hence the reason why I am using Motion Analysis. Motion Analysis does allow deformation of the spring. Is there a work around to this? I know that I can assign a spring in the analysis but this does not do anything for visualization, which is what I am aiming for.
