Create a Remote Point scoped to the end face of a cantilevered beam. Create a displacement, scoped to that remote point and apply a rotation about X to the remote point leaving all others free, and if you have Large Deflection on, you will get a circular looking displacement of the beam. If you also set Z = 0 instead of leaving that free, the end point will move slightly along the Y axis as the tube bends to the applied angle. Do that in step 1 of a two step solution. You can set X=0 if you want or leave it free.


Then in step 2, You can apply a force to the Remote Point in the Y direction and push the end further along the line Z=0, because the displacement in step 2 will holding the angle at the same value as well as hold Z=0.
