Dear Peter, I am attaching some screenshots from the analysis. I did everything you told me but the solver is still struggling and I am not getting a final solution.


1) These are the constraints I have for the type of contact between the main body and the rigid rods.




2) This is the setup I have for making the rods rigid bodies


 



 


3) These are the constraints when I am applying the remote displacement for the top rod. For the other 2 rods I have put everything at 0.




Since they are all rigid bodies only the face that is touching the main body is meshed, meaning that I cannot have the top face of the rod as my selection for the displacement in the -Z axis. 


is there anything specific that I need to edit ? I am not able to figure out what I have wrong here.


Kindly, Michael
