How to model a spring in CATIA kinematics?

Hi GrabCad,

I have modelled a spring in catia. In the center of the spring i made a sketch line. I've put in some simple formulas such that the spring length changes with the length of that center line (so basically, just like in real life).

Is it possible to model this in kinematics? Can i somehow constrain the endpoints of the center line, so that when the parts to which it is connected move, the length of the center line changes with it?

Thanks in advance

Real kinematic doesn't work in CATIA. Maybe my video will give you some help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCpmU14xwAM
