Evaporation of water from porous media (a paper towel)

      I have been having difficulty setting up a simple model involving the evaporation of water from a paper towel in a enclosed volume. The paper towel will be heated from direct contact with aluminum plate which is the heat source, and the evaporated water will condense on an aluminum plate on the other side of the enclosure over about a 5 mm air gap. Can someone please help with this initial setup, my simplified model refuses to mesh due to overlapping contact regions. How can I go about fixing this issue?

      Hello:
      Could you please share some screenshots of your geometry and the meshing issue you are facing? Pehaps, you may want to perform share topology in SpaceClaim before meshing. This may help fix the issue.
      Thank you.
