Extremely simple, but unstable model?

Hi all, I''m having some trouble with a fairly simple model. A sort of bookshelf: a shelf on one rigid body. I actually don't want to use inertia relief because I don't know the consequences...

The supports are rigid. And I would like a No Penetration contact. When a bonded contact is used, no problems. As soon as I go to No Penetration-contact SW15 gives me the error of an unstable model.


I attached the assembly with its studies. The problems are occuring with the study: Shelf - No Screws.

Are there any advices?? Thanks!



I think the No penetration contact is the problem. Check the 2nd screencapture. Where it's said 'no penetration' it just penetrates the full 100%. I don't get anything of what's happening here..
