I believe you ask this same question yesterday. I assume you did not like the responses? Also since you are using a student version I assuming this is an assignment.

We had done a lot of research...
Before you move to the advanced topic of Simulation - I recommend that you take a basics class on using SolidWorks (or at least go through the built-in Tutorials).
First thing I notice is that your Sketch1 is not fully defined.
For some reason you have skewed your polygon?
Then I notice that none of your sketches are fully defined - this is a topic usually covered in the first 30 minutes of class - weeks or months before moving to analysis topics.
Then I notice that you have a single part - with a single body, where I would expect from my experience to see a mechanism assembly.
Has your instructor approved this project?
Has your instructor provided the instruction that would be necessary to complete the project?
Can you ask your instructor to join this discussion?
It seems from your mechanism that you need a flexible material. If you dont have problem with retail price , I advice you to use nitinol on your
mechanism. I will attach a link which you can check the properties of nitinol and also you can check the other alloys.
