Hi everyone. I have question regarding how to release shell mesh from underlying solid mesh. I have a 3D plate whose surface has been meshed with shell elements. the inside volume of the plate is meshed with 3D solid elements. Now, I need to define contact between these shell and solid elements. Is there some way that I can release this shell mesh from solid mesh so that they have independent nodes? (right now, the shell and solid elements share nodes at the surfaces)

Yes there is.

Button : VOLUME MESH>Volumes>Release

Function Name : Release
Summary :
This function releases the solid elements, which have been generated from the underlying volume. The node and element ID's remain intact.

Have a nice day
