Springs, Dampers, and Forces

Question asked by Jon Maj on Feb 25, 2013

So I have 6 springs, 6 dampers and 1 force on a shaft. Three spring and dampers on each end of the shaft with 120 degrees between each spring and the springs perpindicual to the shaft. I have a force acting on the shaft acting in the down direction for 0.5 seconds. The springs should be strong enough to prevent the shaft from goin more than 1 inch in any direction, but the shaft goes down and never stops. I have attached the necessary files and was wondering if anyone could figure out what is wrong?
