topspin247 is on a distinguished road

I have a geometry with 500 sticks. They are mostly overlapping with each other (think the game pickup sticks).

However, because they are randomly generated, is there any way to find and remove the ones that are not connected/overlapping with all the other sticks in the geometry? I expect there to be around 10-20 unconnected sticks out of the 500.

Otherwise, can ANSYS Mechanical run a simulation with several unconnected bodies? I don't think it should be able to.
