 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."

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?
