Deformation by gravity

      I'm doing a simulation of grape berries in plastic packaging, in the first step I'm applying the action of gravity, but the deformation in the berries is having a VERY dubious distribution (image below). What would be the problem?

      Hi,

      Can you insert the contact tool and check the initial contact information? Is there any gap or penetration between parts that is getting solved in the first load step?

      Thanks,

      all contacts are no separation type, berry surfaces are set to "contact" and packaging to "target". In case of contact between the berries, the top one is set to "contact" and the bottom one to "target". example below:
