      As you can watch in the video, I am able to get insertion but I wish to withdraw or perform retention. Can anyone please help me with the same ? I need both strokes in single animation. I am trying to get force convergence through it. I am new to Ansys so please kindly explain in layman terms.

      Under Analysis Settings, change the Number of Steps to 2.


      For the Displacement boundary condition that pushed the pin in, say 5 mm in step 1,  that will now have a row for step 2. Just type 0 in step 2 and the pin will withdraw.



      Try changing the Mesh details to get at least two elements across the thickness of the sheet metal part to improve accuracy of the stress. This example shows 3 elements across.
