    Equal Deflection Restraint

    Daniel Paulsen

      Has anyone figured out how to restrain a surface of a part to have equal deflection in a single direction only?  In other words i need a surface to translate in all three directions but the surface must remain parallel to its initial plane.  See picture below.

      I need the surface where the force is applied to equally deflect in the vertical direction.  In the image below you can see the undesired deflection:
