Boundary conditions of rigid body in static simulation

      Hello

      How to apply boundary conditions to rigid body in static simulation? I also found that there is no mesh in rigid body after finishing meshing.

      Hi

      That is correct.

      A remote displacement can be defined on a rigid body.

      All the best

      Thank you very much for your quick response! So if I need the fixed condition for rigid body, what I should do is to scope any face of the rigid body, input 0 for all DOFs, and most important, behavior should be rigid as shown below, is it correct?

      HI
      I never use rigid bodies, so I would suggest to
      Try things out and see how it works.
