I’m trying to create a spring that goes from a specific spot on one body to a specific spot on another. My bodies are both bones, and they each just have one continuous face, so I’m unable to select the specific spots I want for the reference and mobile scopes of the spring. When I click on the bone, it selects the whole face and the ends of the springs end up being at each of the bones’ global coordinate systems. I tried using the different select tools to select specific nodes, elements, and element faces as the reference and mobile scopes but that didn’t work. While I was able to select those things, the scope boxes remained highlighted yellow and there was a question mark beside the spring in the Outline tab. Does anyone have any tips on how to do this? Some background: I meshed the bones in another software and imported the meshes as external models.

You can define remote points and use that as well for creating the springs.
