Contact Tool in Mechanical 20R1

      Hi,


      I could create an initial contact tool by right click on a specific contact in ansys mechanical 19R1 version. That was very practical. Now I am using 20R1 but I couldn't find such an option. Do I have to create an initial contact tool for all contact regions and deactivate the ones I don't need?

      Hi,


      Even in 2020R1 you can right-click on any contact(s) -->Create-->Contact Tool. That should given you the initial contact information for that/those contact pairs. If you right-click on Connections you choose Insert-->Contact Tool. But for individually selected contact pairs its Create-->Contact Tool


       


      Hope this helps,

       There is no "create" option when I right click on a contact in 20R1. Can you share an example?

      That is strange. This is 2020R1 and this is what I see:
