Display a coil shape in your 3-D model
The length of the coil shape is displayed between the points at which frame_a and frame_b are connected in the model workspace. In the 3-D Visualization Area, the windings of the coil surround the implicit geometry.
If you connect this shape to the frames of a single component,
the coil shape is displayed over the implicit geometry that represents the component in the 3-D Visualization Area.
If you connect this component to the frames of two different modeling components,
the coil shape spans multiple components.
Defines the location of one coil end.
Defines the location of the second coil end.
Number of coil windings.
Radius of the coil.
Radius of the coil tubing.
Color of the coil. For information on using the color selection tools, see Selecting Colors.
Select this option to enable the Dynamic Color port. With the Dynamic Color port enabled, you can use the Color Blend component to change color throughout the simulation.
Select this option to make the geometry component transparent.
