How do you merge two composite surfaces after ACP

      Hi, I generated my composite structure in ACP, but I would like to merge the two sections of the shell into one before I run the static structural, how can I go about doing this?

      Before I did ACP, I had the shell surface from spaceclaim and they were not merged due to the nature of the structure. Is there a way to do this in mechanical after I have created the composite in ACP?

      From the images, it is not very clear where you want to merge the surfaces. If the faces line up at an edge, see if you can use mesh controls to create matching meshes. Then you can use node merge (right click on Mesh branch) to merge the nodes. If you just need the faces to be glued together, see if you can use bonded contact. If this doesn't help, please provide more details regarding your questionn
