The dependence of the properties of the element of UCS

Hello.
Is it possible to automatically generate in Femap linear elements whose properties (axial stiffness) depends on the position of the element relative to UCS

There was another post along these lines:

Simulating Spring with Variable Stiffness, the link is here:

You should be able to use that capability in some way.  I note you say "position of the element" and "relative to the UCS", which sound like you intend force vs displacement, which is what that other post is all about.
