nAre you working in Mechanical?nIn Mechanical, you can define two line bodies that are overlapping, but not sharing geometry. Use a command snippet to turn each line body into their respective springs, and then merge the nodes. A single combin14 element can either be a 3 dimensional longitudinal spring, or act in a single dimension. It cannot act in two dimensions, hence why you need two line bodies.nThe other option is to use the bushing element, COMBI250, but this is only available in later releases. Or you can use the bushing joint.nn
