Hi can someone explain to me the difference of using Fixed support, Displacement, and remote displacement

Fixed Support sets all Degrees of Freedom (DOF) to zero. A solid element has 3 DOFs for x, y and z coordinates.
Displacement can set one or more DOF to zero or non-zero values. If there is a face, then the entire area of the face has to move by the value of displacement.
Remote Displacement allow you to pick a face, and a single point is created to control that face. You can apply a zero or non-zero value to any of the 6 DOFs.

Exactly the same.
