how to model 3-point-bending test on Ansys APDL?

how to model 3-point-bending test on Ansys APDL?

(OP)
hello and good day,
I would like to know how to positioned the constrain correctly on 3-point bending test on Ansys APDL. in order to mimic exactly the 3 point bending the i have to constrain the bottom end of my model. but Ansys keeps selecting automatically the middle line instead.

And what is the exactly constrains that I should apply. I have tried to constrain all DOF for both ends and partially constrain in Ux& Uy at first end and Uy for second end. unfortunately, both gives me absurd result in terms of displacement vector sum.

my model is in 3D.

can someone suggest more correct technique to done it? below i attach my Ansys code for bendng test.

Thank you.
