Do you know what materials in ANSYS WORKBENCH can replace link180 in classical ANSYS?

The string in my structure is a steel cable. In classical ANSYS, I can use the link180 element (LINK180 is a 3D spar that is useful in a variety of engineering applications. The element can be used to model trusses, sagging cables, links, springs, and so on), but in ANSYS Workbench, I cannot find these materials.

I have found out that LINK180 replaced LINK10 and LINK167 in ANSYS Classic. This is the only thing that I have found regarding material replacement for ANSYS Workbench. You can use this reference to model the items you have loaded.

For more information, you can always look through the available websites: https://goo.gl/1Cs220
