Beam and shell connection issue

      In my big assembly (5000 parts almost) of shell and beam, share topology is not working.

      What other option is available to connect mesh of 5000 parts(made of beams and shell)?

      NOTE: I don't want use MPC contact for such a large assembly.

      Hi

      Perhaps batch mesh based connections under meshing might be useful here and of some help perhaps.

      All the best

        Hello tumulpurwar,

        you can see batch connection option in 2020R1.

        Batch Connections (ansys.com)

        Thanks

      Whats this error means?
      One or more beam edge topologies could not be shared. This can occur if the beams associated with the shared edge have non-matching properties.Beam properties like the section definition, offset and the ÔÇ£IsReversedÔÇØ flag must match.
