Default Contact points on mesh

I'm trying to simulate a group of spheres, similar to a pebble bed. These spheres have a gap between them, but I need to create a contact point between them, like in this image:

Can someone help me with this? Do I need to do this in CAD, or is there a way to accomplish it using the mesh setting?

Surface Wrapper could help.
Remeshing and imprinting also might be an option.
