I'm a beginer in ANSA. I have two models (rat's skull and brain) and I need to align the surface of the brain with the inner cavity of the skull. The problem is intersection (or gaps) of these two volumes. Is there any way to align these two models in ANSA?

Images for imagine the situation and also image regarding to the intersection of these two models:

Many thanks in advance

I think it is better to create brain volume from skull instead of aligning. There are also some options to align mesh/nodes in Mesh menu. It may be under grid or elements. Since I am not using this function much, I am not sure how you can use that.
