Hello everyone

I'm trying to setup telescopic crane analysis with Ansys Mechanical 2020 R2. I'm currently stuck with one problem- how to prevent jibs (shown below) from sliding out one from another? In Nastran I just simply created RBE2 elements beetwen two bodies, blocked X and Y translation, and that just worked. How to do such thing in Ansys? I Tried Revolute and Cylindrical Joints, but simulation does not want to converge.
