Spring Energy

The spring energy implemented in VaryLab comes with a few options that I want to explain here.
The user interface contains controls that adjust rest length to be constant length (const. option) , the original lenght (orig option), or rest range (range option) of springs. Every edge of the discrete surface is treated as a spring during optimization. In addition to setting a fixed length or range the optimizer can calculate the mean edge length of the mesh (avg. option) and use it as rest length of the springs. This mean can be automatically updated (update check box) when optimization starts. In a quad mesh the diagonals can be treated as springs (diagonals check box). The strength value is a coefficient of the energy when used in conjunction with other energies.
