Is there a way to make a spring work or at least simulate it?
I'm currently making a v8 DOHC engine and I'm on the step of making the valves and camshafts. I modeled the valve and valve spring, but realized I don't know how to use them as it should be. Is there any way to simulate that when the camshaft hits the valve, it opens then springs back in place when it releases? I'm not looking for extreme accuracy, just for it to work and look somewhat how it actually would. https://cad.onshape.com/documents/0ff580ae7babfb00179fb540/w/2225ba71d04708a55d72dcba/e/f9c7569094cc2523bc420e6a
