How to copy a contact surface?

Recommended Posts

I have defined a contact surface which has many segment faces in it's segment set (using LS-Dyna profile).


 


I wish to make another contact surface based on the first contact surface definition while keeping the first unchanged.


 


How can I copy the first definition as a starting point for the second? In the first I have manually selected many segments and I don't want to have to do it again.


 


I want to be able to copy the first than add in/remove different parts as a different design configuration and just alter the first contact surface definition accordingly (i.e. copy it then make the appropriate changes).


 


I don't seem to see any option to be able to copy a contact surface into a new contact surface?


 


Is there a way?


 


Thanks.


 


Richard.

Hi,


 


i'm using very often sets (nodes, elements, comps/parts).


Then you can select your entities "by sets" (or use sets directly, e.g. contacts).
