Hi,

 

If you want to create gap elements between nodes of two cylinders, best workaround is to use Spot welds>> GAP.

Hi Prakash, 

Thank you for the help. But the spot can be either  weld or gap. I can create the spot but I don't know how to use it for the gap elements. 

I appreciate if you can give me some ideas about how to work with the spot.
