ANSYS APDL-contact macro !!!
Hi all,

Can somebody help me, or can offer some support in my next necessity:

-to made a macro which can detect automatically all surfaces or lines (must have possibility to choose only one of them) in contact;
-gap betweens surfaces in contact must can be tolerated (0 -> ...+);
-only on surfaces whose distance is between the tolerances will be selected and made with her contact (contact + target);
-if will be added in FEM model supplementary geometry, the existing contact must be ignored and added supplementary contacts (without influence the already existing contact);
-contact type made by default must be bonded contact with criterion Pure Penalty;
-the generated contact must be recognized be contact pair, and must appear on contact pair;

This macro have own role to reduce hard work in ANSYS APDL.

I appreciate all support, any idea or suggestion which can help me to resolve my macro.

Best regards
