Hello Peter I really appreciated you prepared and practiced the case in Ansys Workbench. I think it is really a good idea to use the dummy beam, which will make the rotation controlled much easier. I was puzzled earlier when I was preparing the case by the translation following by the rotation. It is applied at different steps. Now I think it might be able to achieve with multi-step loads settings. I had set the model and test the case now. I can come back to update tomorrow.
Your approach provided the new reference coordinate moving with the translation and later on use the beam to rotate. This is what I need. Combining with the multi-step loads, I think I can achieve what I want to do. Thank you very much for the help.

Best regards
