Problem radially displacing a simple cylinder – DOF constraints

      I am trying to radially displace this cylinder inwards.

      Hi

      First in the Cyl. Coordinate Sys., rotate it so the Y (theta) direction is tangential to the cylinder and Z is in the axial.
      Then take away the cylindrical support.

      Finally set in the displacement using the cylindrical system: X=-5 mm, and Y =0 (this is in effect tangential) and Z=0 (axial direction).

      That should work fine
