Spring Damper system cancelling the rigid transform?!

Hi everyone,
Does anyone of you know what might be the problem that while i use the spring-damper in between two frames, it somehow cancels the rigid transform between these two frames? I tried to set the natural length of the spring equal to the distance between these two frames but still the same problem persists. I am using the second generation of simMechanics.
Thank you in advance!

I have the same problem. Disheartening to see no views, no answer, two years later.

Hi - without the model, it is hard to give you a specific answer.
A rigid transform is a rigid connection between two frames. If your spring damper is in parallel with the rigid transform, it will have no effect, as those two points are rigidly connected.
