Solid bodies

      How we connect solid bodies into one part one body in ansys.

      Dear ARSH SIDHU,

      You can merge solid bodies by opening your geometry in the DesignModeller.
      Than creating a boolean and unite/merge bodies by updating.

      I hope this helps!

      Your question has many answers depending on the specific case. 
      Here are a list of methods of connecting solid bodies into one part, one body or the equivalent in a model.

      • Unite the solid bodies in DesignModeler or SpaceClaim into one body

      • Put the solid bodies in a single component in SpaceClaim and set Shared Topology to Share or Form New Part in DesignModeler

      • Mesh the bodies with congruent nodes on the shared faces and use Node Merge to make a single meshed body

      • Add bonded contact to the bodies and they will behave like one body

      • Add a fixed joint between the bodies and they will behave like one body

      If you reply with a specific example, I can recommend a specific method.


      Thankyou, its done.
