I'm currently trying to determine how much force is required and total deformation that will form for a ball to connect to a socket. I've simplified my geometry by using symmetry. I've also added inflation layers and edge sizing to make the elements as small as possible without going over the node limit. However, I've been unable to get my solution to converge. Previously before adding a fillet around the region, I had error messages associated with excessive distortion. What are other methods to ensure my solution will converge?
Here's a link to my archived project file.

I recommend you convert this model to a 2D axisymmetric model. It will be much easier to solve.
Here is another member that solved a similar problem and the advice I gave.
