Penetration of line body through 3d solid.

      Hi, i am working on a soft robotic finger model which is displaced using a wire to analyse the stress and deformation in the finger. At higher displacements, the wire penetrates through the solid finger. 



      Any help would be appreciated.


      Thank you!

      I turned on Auto Time Stepping, increased the number of substeps in step 2 and 3 to 20 initial, and minimum, reduced the element size, and put more elements around holes (face sizing 1 mm), turned off Adjust to Touch and set the solver to Direct.



      I attach a different model to the one above because I repeated the steps in 18.2 but I didn't run it to the end and it may not get to the same point.
