firatwsen is on a distinguished road

I have a problem with my geometry which I have formed using CATIA v5.

Please imagine my geometry that, there is a body and there are another two

bodies on the first body. So one face of the first body is in contact with

totaly two faces of other two bodies. And I formed one part and three bodies

with these parts.

When I import geometry into design modeller, the face of the first body (in

contact with two faces of other two body), is single (that is no need to

merge).But when ı continue with ansys/meshing, I see that this face (in

contact with two faces of other two body), is divided into two. So I tried to

use virtual face but it gave an error. But as I said first I can not see these

two faces at design modeller (they is on face). So I can not use sweep


What is the problem. Thanks in advanced.
