FEA Efficiency Study Regarding Large Deflections

For this report, I was asked to simulate a 3D printed PLA cantilever beam that is 150 mm long with a cross-section of 1mm x 10 mm. At the end of the beam, a transverse end load at a range of force magnitudes would be present. I was then to compare the predicted deflection to the linear and nonlinear FEA analysis. Below is the report that I wrote up after completing the analysis.
