Adding initial tension for extension spring

Adding initial tension for extension spring

Generally for extension springs, spring force = initial tension+k*(current length-original length)

And for compression springs, spring force = k*(current length-original length)

Adding initial tension option is not there in Pro-E & I've found that the difference between theoretical & Pro-E spring force is because of this component missing in Pro-E.

Note : Initial tension is the force which is holding the extension spring in the coiled position. and it can be calculated automatically using a simple formula

What has to be done to promote this idea & implement in the future version of Pro-E
