RFEM shows a warning message saying that the intersection is not defined correctly. How can I avoid this?


This warning might be caused by overlapping surfaces, which may occur when modelling one solid to another, for example (see Figure 1).

Figure 01 - Model and Warning Message

In order to avoid the overlapping surfaces, an opening is required here. After defining the opening, also check if the definition of the solids have to be corrected.
