Hi Peter, thanks for the recommendation.

No matter how big I make the pinball radius, the status keeps appearing as 'near open'. I'm not sure what to do from here. On another note. I keep receiving the following messages when I run my simulations:

- One or more objects may have lost some scoping attachments during the geometry update. You can identify these tree objects by filtering the tree using the Scoping option set to Partial.

- One or more bodies may be underconstrained and experiencing rigid body motion. Weak springs have been added to attain a solution.  Refer to Troubleshooting in the Help System for more details.

- Contact status has experienced an abrupt change.  Check results carefully for possible contact separation.
