Are you referring to the Design Acclerator in the assembly environment or simply adding a taper angle in the part environment with the Coil feature?

I don't think there is a way to do it with the DA.

Good Afternoon. This is the answer that give me the Autodesk specialist. Thanks for your colaborations.

 

"Dear Camilo Rivera

 Thank you for contacting Autodesk Support.Your observation is correct, the module Inventor Design Accelerator does not support the creation of conical springs, springs can only be created straight through the tool."
