Terminating a displacement “Load” at certain reaction force?

      Hi,

      I am trying to model various forming processes in Static Structural and am using a rigid face as my die, which Is then being displaced down into my deformable part. The problem is that I would like to terminate this displacement once the reaction force on the die reaches a certain value, then have the die return to its Initial position. The reason I'm not simply applying a force load rather than a displacement is to avoid rigid body motion as there are stages in my model where the die briefly loses contact with other parts, it also makes it simpler to model the un-loading portion where springback occurs. Is there any way I could achieve this? Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

      I would also be interested to know if this is possible. It's something I was wondering about last week!
