Hi Vinayak,

Thank you for explaining that. I need to generate a 3D crack( with some length, depth, and thickness) into a model and simulate the model to compression and buckling in the presence of that crack. So, I assume the arbitrary crack method would help me get that.

I also went through the Ansys help document but it hasn't mentioned how can I create another surface body. Could you please elaborate more on what you said 'Create a Surface in CAD that will be a Construction Geometry in Mechanical'? That would be really helpful. 

Thank you in advance. 

Best Regards,

Divya Giri
