Hi everybody,

I'm having trouble with structural mechanical solutions for my biomedical model. I need to decrease mesh size because at the previously tested one the solution does not converge.

However, when I decrease it the analysis stops in the early phase outputting the following error: "Contact element type 0 used for general contact surface defined by section ID 0 is also associated with other pair based contact element. This pattern is not supported. Please verify the model."

I already tried looking for it around but didn't find anything helpful. Here attached you will find the whole solver output.

Hope somebody could help me, this is a pretty annoying trouble. :\
