      Hello, nI have a APDL model with contact elements, node to node conta178 elements and the common node of contact elements has restraints. nI archived the model form APDL as a .cdb file, to import this model in Workbench, but I don?t see these contact elements in Workbench. nThe contact elements, conta178 are used to represent the bearings with an assigned stiffness value for KN and have restraints at free end node. nCan these contact elements be created in Workbench? n

      you are asking a version dependent question. Please see the Workbench help, for your version, and review the details on the External Model component system.nMiken
