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


The reason for this warning might be overlapping surfaces, which can occur when for example one solid is modeled onto another, see figure 1.

Figure 01 - Model and Warning Message

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