I have to create multibody part, in which those bodies are in contact. However, when I create them they merge by default into one body...the only way I found to keep them as separated bodies is to freeze some of them...but when I unfreeze them later after I finish they merge again.
My question: can I keep some bodies frozen and finish building the model and then go the meshing application? in other words, do I need to unfreeze any frozen bodies after finish modeling the geometry i.e. before going to the meshing ?
If not can anyone tell me a way to keep those contacted bodies separated (not merged)?

best regards
