What output do you need from an analysis?

In this simulation, I turned off the contact and applied a Pressure load to the face of the first tooth to deflect the pipe segment out. I also applied a Pressure load to the face on the inner collett.  I found you used a fixed support on the faces of the inner collett, I expected to find a Frictionless Support to be analogous to the way you supported the pipe, to represent a symmetry condition.
