As I try to make a deformation analysis for a simple 3D structure in Ansys Discovery Live; I see the solution is on going ( an hour or so) with no answer (the solution button still flashes, not yielding a final answer) , I have defined the parameters that need to be defined, has anyone encountered this problem before ?

Your model generated results almost immediately for me. I would recommend restarting Discovery Live and trying it again.

Brian Bueno is the problem due to contacts in the structure, is it possible to set the contacts between parts in the assembly in Ansys Discovery Live ?

As long as the parts are assembled together and in contact with one another, Discovery Live should recognize them.
The results you're getting may just be a function of the geometry being comprised of thin walled beams.
One of the limitations of Discovery Live is in working with bodies whose thickness is small relative to the overall size of the model.
You can try increasing the fidelity of the simulation, but generally speaking, Discovery Live will have trouble handling these types of models.

Brian Bueno but is it possible to define to contacts manually ? or does Ansys discovery live not support this feature ?
