Benefits and Description

To simplify the workflow of setting up interfaces (bond, free, contact, thermal resistance), you can create the interface using a Component-Component reference type. Mechanica then creates contact interfaces between any two components that satisfy your specifications under Selection Filtering Tolerance.

The settings include separation distance and angle. You can also create contact between only planar surfaces. You can easily remove unwanted contacts or change them to a bonded or free interface.
