Example: Assembly Model with Gap
This figure shows that after midsurface compression, the resulting model develops a gap between the collet and the bracket. By nature, the collet midsurface is smaller than the outer surface and no longer reaches the bracket despite the assembly constraints. Because it applies a shell thickness that would interfere with the bracket were the bracket to move, Creo Simulate does not adjust the position of the bracket midsurface to meet the collet midsurface.
