My system has a rack and pinion connection where one of the rack teeth is cut large to produce friction over just that tooth. I am trying to reproduce this localized friction with the loaded contact rotational friction block. The simulation is throwing the error "Transient initialization, solving for consistent states and modes, failed to converge." at simulation start. Am I missing anything obvious, and if not how else might I achieve this?
Attached are images of my simplified system and desired output.
