It would be more practical to model the rope with the cable280 element. Use a small contact stiffness factor between the cable280 and the surfaces of the solid bodies to help convergence. With a 3D model of the rope it will be difficult to simulate the low bending stiffness, but more importantly, will be hard to solve for a large amount of motion.
