Nodal Springs

Nodal springs can be applied on the vertices of model. Nodal spring values are applied relative to the global axis, which can be seen at the bottom left of each Viewport.

Initial Force

The initial Force represents the force that is initially applied on the spring. If no initial force is placed on the springs simply set the values to 0.

Spring Stiffness

Each value represents the spring’s stiffness in the global direction, as in Kx is the stiffness in the x direction.
