I'm attempting to create something similar to a standard 3 point bending simulation in static structural but the default bonding definitions between the primary geometry and 'pins' pose an obvious problem. I've attempted using the friction less contact definition with additional changes to the, connections Pinball Region, Detection Method, and substeps. But have been unsuccessful so far.
Any tips or tutorials would be greatly appreciated.
I would prefer to use Static Structural over Explicit for this application.
