      How can one define axial, lateral and torsional stiffness of a spring?n

      To take into account all three of these aspects of spring stiffness, one may define three springs - longitudinal springs for axial and lateral directions and torsional spring (which requires you to turn beta features on: go to the Workbench Page -> Tools -> Options -> Appearance -> scroll down and check the box labeled 'Beta Options') for defining the relevant stiffness. Also, one may use a bushing/ general joint to define the stiffness in the relevant directions.n
