Hi Rohan,

The video suggested by Nanda will be really helpful for you in solving the distortion issue error. 

From your description, it looks like you want to model interference fit. So, make sure that your softer side is your contact side, and the pinball radius you have defined should be more than the interference. I have attached 2 videos that will help you correctly choose the contact and target side, and the other will help you in modeling interference fit properly. Also, use enough number of substeps so that load is applied gradually.
