It's not possible. We have several ER's requesting similar functionality.

Thanks Ben . Sure I'll keep this info in mind on next post.
The post was intented to get some info on the problem below.
Showing the compressed and non-compressed state of spring assy (like spring position in cycle stand when it is released and made on).
I need to present these two assy states. Could anyone suggest a better way on this problem ?
On your assembly, you probably have a parameter(1) which for arrangement(1) have for value 50 and arrangement(2) 80.
You can create wave link expression for parameter(1). Between your assembly and your spring.
And when you switch beetwen assembly, every spring is updated.
But if it's reuse part, it's not the best way.... for demo it's cool !

Thanks for this Solution, but for us, it has a hiccup: If we reuse this Part after releasing it, we cannot modify it anymore. The described way only works if you already make Arrangements for all the desired Conditions you want your part to be in before you release the part. Unfortunately, this is not the case for us as the Spring can have billions of different lengths depending on the application.
Does anyone have a Solution for this that works stable? I am close to desperate to get a workaround for this...
my solution is to pilot the spring compression using the expression of the distance or the measurement.
For example, the spring is created as deformable. In the length value of the deformable part, you put the expression name of eventual measurement or constraints distance.
