Hello Peter,

thank you for your answer and sorry for replying this late.

  • By the rod, do you mean to add a primitive (box) as rigid at the edge of the glass pane and to define contact between rod and pane as bonded?

  • How can I apply a Joint Displacement or Joint Force; should I go under Connections>Joints?

  • Regarding "You know from CAD how far to move the rod to become tangent to the pane on the mold.  Just type that value into the Displacement" -> sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't. I don't because in the case where I want to parametrize the mould radius, this distance will be changing. What can be done in this case?
