      I’ve been trying my best to do some stress simulations in SolidWorks on a design I’ve made. My problem is that it rests between two rails with a weight bearing down on it and I can’t find how to simulate something just resting on an object without fixing it to a point in space.

      I spent all this evening watching tutorials and reading on forums trying to get it right but have failed. I just can’t seem to find how to fix a model so that it is resting on some rails.

      Here is a very simple example, the rod rests between the two bars and I want to apply force to the middle to see what happens without fixing the two ends in space as this will give an unreliable test.

      Testing with it fixed is no problem but like this I cant do. Can anyone please help me with this? Just to be pointed in the right direction would be great.
