I have modeled a spring with SCREW modifier, placed it in a cylinder which is attached to the ground and I would like to run a simulation where the spring should compress when a cube fall on the spring. I would also like to know the behavior of the spring when a smaller cube fall on the spring. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ If you are going for realism I don't think that a cube of that size can compress a spring of that gauge(spring for is increases as gauge increases). The cube will simply compress the spring a little bit and it will fall off $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ if you search on this site "animate spring" there is a bunch of related. I remember one of mine blender.stackexchange.com/a/166253/2214 with manually animated curve, but there are also rigged or physics solution, but it dipenc how your result should looks like to deside the effective solution. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ hey @Nxdhin2005 thank you for the response. I am looking for the spring simulation(Realism), I do not want to control the spring compression and expansion in animation. I want to know its behavior. As you mentioned in your 2nd comment I will try reducing the gauge of the spring. It a very good input. Thank you. $\endgroup$ Jul 20, 2020 at 7:39
  • $\begingroup$ You are welcome i also found out that adding keframes to the scale on z axis can be used to some extend $\endgroup$
