      Dear Users Our Commercial and Academic users around the world can use these same forums here as before i.e. the Altair Support Forum , Commercial users from India with solver queries can go to the Solver Forum for India Commercial Users , Academic Users from India and AOC India Participants are requested to go to the Forum for India Academic Users and AOC India Participants , We will be tending to all queries in all the forums promptly as before, thank you for your understanding. 


I am doing MV-1010-contact simulation tutorial of geneva model. When i checked the final model the page prompted an error in the model as:

"Error:   Contact Crank_to_slotted under Model from HM references one or
              more graphics that contain free edges, i.e. the geometry is not
              closed, or T connections.   The graphic(s) in question are: Crank,
              Slotted Disk.                                                     
              Open shell graphics or graphics with T connections are not allowed
              in contact simulations.  "

I think i need to delete or merge free edges, but i don't know the procedure for doing that. Please help me in solving this issue?

Hello Abhishek

when you are doing contact simulation in MotionView you should have properly meshed model

so Use Hypermesh to mesh it properly then go to tools>Edges> Check for free edges and T connection

If you found Free edges or T connection you have to remove it. Your geometry should be completely closed
