Unlimited freedom in space in Ansys

      Is it possible to fix a component in space and at the same time allow translational and rotational motion due to residual stresses of the component?

      Use a Remote Displacement, Behavior = Deformable, and set all six DOF to 0 to hold the component fixed. A deformable Remote Displacement adds no stiffness to the surface that it is scoped to so it is free to deform due to residual stresses.
