4 things.

Use surface bodies and thus shell elements (happens automatic when meshing a surface) instead of 3D parts as you have now (as these are thin structures – no need for 3D parts).

Analyse the whole model – so no symmetry is then needed.

Add a small restrain in one vertex in X or use weak springs (

Finally one does not need adaptive meshing region if you do as per the above suggestions (so take that away).

All the best
