Glue connectors


I am relatively new to using SolidEdge / CAD packages.

I have a question regarding the glue connectors used in the SolidEdge student edition.

Essentially I have a cylindrical-like solid between two posts and I want to apply a strain to this cylinder by displacing one of the posts whilst one of the posts remains fixed.

I have defined the left hand post to be fixed and the right hand one to move 1.5mm along the x axis as so:


I have then connected both posts (one at a time) to the cylinder by simply using the auto connector glue tool and selecting the post followed by the tendon:


When I look to run the simulation e.g. solve, everything seems to work well apart from the cylinder pulling away from the post at either side. See below - a gap forming between the post and the cylinder (picture shows this particularly on the right hand side but this is also happening on left hand side)


How am I able to create a 'secure' tight connection between both the post and the cylinder which does not move apart if the glue option is not doing this?
