How can I quickly create a contact solid between two contact surfaces in RFEM?

Answer

The fastest way to create a contact solid between two planar surfaces is to use the 'Create Solid with Contact' feature. Select both contact surfaces and select the corresponding option in the shortcut menu (see Figure 01).

The program then automatically creates a contact solid including all boundary surfaces and openings in the solid. You only need to define the contact properties in the settings of the contact solid (see Figure 02).
