Is it possible to use rigid bodies in a plane stress 2D static structual simulation? I can set parts as rigid but i can not add joints to them so i am unable to add boundary conditions to them.
I am trying to simulate the bending of a flexible wire between two rigid parts as shown in the picture but i can not add a fixed body-ground joint to the two rigid parts above and below the wire in order to fix them in place. When i turn the simulation to 3D i can add joints and joint loads without any issues. Is there any way to use the joints in 2D or just fix the rigid parts in place by other means?
