It is okay to use Bonded Contact to connect edges of one part to the face of another part if the geometry won't merge.nAnother approach is to introduce a clean body to trim each incoming tube to, then that becomes the connecting feature such as is shown below.nNovember 26, 2020 at 2:56 amNovember 27, 2020 at 4:23 amsohamSubscribersorry i'm using workbench 19.0 ,yeah and as you said unable to open file. Thank you for the guidance. how can i clean bodies to trim them ? nNovember 27, 2020 at 9:47 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberAttached is a Parasolid V21 file. The trim is not perfect, but you get the idea.nnNovember 29, 2020 at 3:44 pmsohamSubscriberit will probably solve my problem to do an explicit analysis. But i have few questions for you sir nwhat is that ball joint like surface ? nanother thing is how you created it ?( if any commands or how to video tutorial would be a great to understand it )nwill that ball like surface wouldn't give me a different result as it doesn'tn represent my actual geometry n4.What possibly went wrong with original model? any tips will save my time in future .nTruly, thank You for your responses and guidance nNovember 29, 2020 at 3:52 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberArraynI added a solid sphere at the intersection of the tubes and made the diameter larger (1.25) than the tubes (1.0).nI used the sphere with the Split Body tool to trim the tubes back to a common surface. Then I added a plane to slice a face into the four spheres. Then I selected the face of the sphere and used Copy/Paste to create a surface. Then I deleted the solid bodies. Then I used Combine to unite all the surfaces.nIn my initial reply I suggested you could use Bonded Contact to connect edges of one part to the face of another part if the geometry won't merge. That would keep the tubes as close as possible to the original shape.nComplex intersections like four or five tubes intersecting sometimes creates trimming operations that fail. That is why suggestion #3 is sometimes needed.nNovember 29, 2020 at 4:13 pmsohamSubscriberthank you so much sir !nViewing 7 reply threads
