Hello all,

Sorry for the simple question but I'm transitioning from Gambit to Workbench.

I'm trying to create a very simple 2D model with two rectanglar faces of different size.

Normally in Gambit I would create two faces and split the faces to connect the two faces.

My Workbench problem.
1. I can create a 2D rectangle from a sketch, create a surface and mesh a simple rectangle surface with no problem.

2. If I create two 2D rectangle from a sketch, I get an "Error: Invalid profile selection". What am I missing?

Perhaps someone else can also contribute... I am only moderate in my DM skills, but here is my suggestion.

If you want the two rectangles to be continuous (one region), then remove the line from between them in the sketch.

If you want them to be two zones connected where they contact, then create the second rectangle in a second sketch...

the problem is overlapping of two edges/lines, check the overlapping of entity and than remove it
