Hi, I wanna ask how to imprintnwasher contact area on midsurface of plate.
The figure below shows that 3 plates are connected by 3 bolts and nuts.
I want to make Bolt Pretension on each bolt.
But the problem happens, when I imprint bolt and nut's washer area like figure below.
Before make midsurfaces of plates, you can see the area of washer imprinted by bolt.
When I make midsurfaces of plates like figure below, those areas disappear.
So I cannot make bolt pretension in Workbench Mechanical.
How can I imprint those washer areas on plates's midsurface?

Thank you Aniket!
But the problem is, there are so many plates around those bolts. So if I use Projection, Bolt's projected areas are imprinted to plates that I don't want...
Is there any other way?
