I facing a problem where there are gaps. I have tried to use the extend surface option but not abler to remove the gaps. Please help me out. have attached a pic for reference.

I can't tell exactly what your problem is from the image, but if you want to extend a surface, I believe it has to have no mesh associated with it.

 

Are the gaps present because it's a different part or the same part?

  • If it's the same part, you should make sure that your surfaces are correct before meshing and intersect them so that the surface edge lines are all yellow / green where surfaces meet. (Red indicates a free edge).
  • If it's a different part then there should be a gap. You can attach the parts by creating fasteners with CBARs, CBUSHs, RBEs etc or define contact
