    Hello, You have several ways to do this. 1) You could use a template including a fix joint when certain distance is achieved (the computation of the system can be done using a sensor) https://altairhyperworks.com/hwhelp/Altair/2019/help/ms/topics/solvers/ms/understand_seq_sim_intro_t.htm 2) You can add contact between the bodies as it happens in the real life I guess. https://altairhyperworks.com/hwhelp/Altair/2019/help/ms/topics/solvers/ms/3d_mesh_to_mesh_contact_sim_intro_r.htm https://altairhyperworks.com/hwhelp/Altair/2019/help/tutorials/mv-1012.pdf 3) You could add a second force with a impact function to limit the movement (analog to use contacts) 4) You could include a bistop function on the joint providing a range that the joint can translate. https://altairhyperworks.com/hwhelp/Altair/2019/help/ms/topics/solvers/ms/bistop.htm?zoom_highlightsub=bistop Best regards, Felipe.
