Hello Sir,

So I changed the model a bit to more accurately reflect my device. The moment on the right side will eventually cause the two pillars to touch. This is what I'm looking for. However I have not had much luck with enforcing contact (thus why I'm trying to use displacement). I have read a bit about parameterizing but cannot find a solid source. Ideally I would like to optimize the gap between the pillars for a given strain. But for now I would just like to increase the moment until contact is made (or the difference of displacement in the X is 0). I'm not exactly sure how to add a direct optimization component as you mentioned above. Thank you again for your time.
