Pivoting / sliding interaction

Pivoting / sliding interaction

Pivoting / sliding interaction

Greetings. In Workbench (V10) is there a contact or support that allows for sliding as well as rotation (separation)? Think of a plate that is in contact with a surface, but has a moment applied to it causing it to rotate off the plate, but and edge is constrained to remain in contact. Like a peeling action.

The point indicated would be both sliding and in contact. In my actual use case, the plate is circular, and is constrained 360deg by a flexible retainer. I am trying to determine the limits of the retainer as the plate rotates up.

RE: Pivoting / sliding interaction

Hello. Are you used Frictionless contact? You should to use point to surface type of contact. Could you attach your model?
