Benefits and Description

When entering Mechanica, you can select the default interface type for the coincident surfaces of components of your assembly. You can choose to merge them, leave them free, or create contacts (or thermal resistance) between them. Mechanica will automatically create interfaces to connect coincident surfaces and components while meshing or during an analysis.
