How to connect 2d shell to 3d solid ? is there any best practice to follow ? Currently have connected both shell and solid with 0.01 mm shell elements.

it really depends on what you're trying to model and what connection type you're representing. You could simplify things depending on the case.

You could use a TIE/FREEZE contact also for connecting these dissimilar meshes. I'd say that it really depends on the stiffness of your physical connection.
