mesh intersecting another mesh
I am simulating a process (friction stir processing) where a tool (has cylindrical geometry and small cylindrical pin) is imprinted in a sheet that is designed with a hole ( Where the pin is inserted ), now the tool should rotate and then move linearly, I still dont know how to transfer the interface (in the sheet region) with the moving tool....does anyone have an idea??? in case the interface didnt follow the tool, then the pin of the tool will get inside the closed mesh of the sheet....I am using a direct interface (in place) between the tool and the sheet, does changing the interface type help??
