    You should always say what version of ANSYS you are using.

    If I edit your file in a newer version than you are using, you will not be able to open the file I worked on.

    I'm not sure what you wanted at the front. It is okay to use Bonded Contact to connect edges of one part to the face of another part if the geometry won't merge.

    Another approach is to introduce a clean body to trim each incoming tube to, then that becomes the connecting feature such as is shown below.

  • sorry @peteroznewman i'm using workbench 19.0 ,yeah and as you said unable to open file. Thank you for the guidance. how can i clean bodies to trim them ?

  • it will probably solve my problem to do an explicit analysis. But i have few questions for you sir

    1. what is that ball joint like surface ?
    2. another thing is how you created it ?( if any commands or how to video tutorial would be a great to understand it )
    3. will that ball like surface wouldn't give me a different result as it doesn't

    represent my actual geometry

    4.What possibly went wrong with original model? any tips will save my time in future .

    Truly, thank You for your responses and guidance
