How to model springs with 6DOF stiffness?

      I am trying to do modal analysis on monopile(cylindrical structure) interation with soil.

      I have data of 6DOF stiffness(x,y z, Rx, Ry, Rz) on layers of soil

      How can I apply stiffness in spring? it seems in ANSYS there's only spring with one direction(longitudinal)

      Here is a relevant link: https://forum.ansys.com/forums/topic/how-to-replace-connector-elements-available-in-abaqus-with-6-dof-spring-in-ansys/

      Another approach is to use a COMBI250 element. Here is an example: https://forum.ansys.com/forums/topic/parameterize-springs-stiffness-constants-in-mechanical-command-snippet/

      Search for COMBI250 for more posts like this.
