On this page


This tool constrains points on the wire object to a “goal” location derived from another simulation object or from a position in world space. You need to create a Wire Object before invoking this tool. You can use this tool, for example, to simulate a bungee cord.

Using Wire Spring Constraint

  1. Click the Wire Spring Constraint tool on the Wires tab.

  2. Select the Wire Object or points on the wire object to constrain and press Enter to confirm your selection.


    If you select the whole object, the constraint will be placed at the root of the object.

For specific parameter help see the SBD Spring Constraint node help.
