I know how to make your model in NASTRAN. The image below shows the links connected with springs, with a downward load shown with the green arrow. After the static equilibrium is solved, the links are deflected downward.
I exported ANSYS commands for this model in the attached text file.
If you start Mechanical APDL, and read in this file, you will have the solved model, but not in Workbench. I'm not an expert at Mechanical APDL, but I can see the deformed shape! When plotting deformation results, there is the real deformation, which might be small, then there is a viewing scale factor, which can make the deformation look larger than it really is, but makes it easier to see how it is deforming. The plot above has a larger viewing scale factor.
Good luck!
