How can I compress a spring.. The options on the right do not work... and I cannot get the little white balls to scale it down..

Try to change local scale.

in this case you do not need a uniform scale.

Destiny, please send model.

At this point it is not easy to animate springs our of Simulation workbench, this is something we will look into.

Hi.. Even if Simulation does not work with the Spring, the piston should still be able to be Simulated, and then the Spring could be compressed in the timeline to match, but I cannot compress/scale the Spring Down.. It cannot be squished.. Unless I am doing it wrong...

I guess I am pushing the boundaries of Simlab Composer.. I started off just needing to animate a few simple shapes for my early year students, but I have developed from that and now want to learn more.. Besides, its fun to use.. :D

Was there a solution for this question? I have to animate a spring and I'm looking for answers on how to do that with Simlab.
