Joining two meshes in Hyperworks

Joining two meshes in Hyperworks

Joining two meshes in Hyperworks

I am hoping someone can help me with this question.

Part was meshed and contacts created. In came a request for a small geometry change. I deleted the old mesh on that section, imported the new geometry and re-meshed that area.
I can not seem to figure out how to merge or make the two meshes aligned. The green is the new mesh and the brown is the existing.

I would think this would be a very common practice, with designs changing and revised constantly. It can't be that the entire model is remeshed and all the contacts are re done.

Thank you.

RE: Joining two meshes in Hyperworks

This is probably too late. but this looks like the surfaces are not stitched together. are you sure that the edges between those surfaces have been joined?

Geometry->quick edit
toggle edge
left-click on the edge

the two edges should join. if they do not, then change your tolerance to a larger number and try again.

Thanks Jagodragon. Never too late.
I’ll give it a try! What I ended up doing
Is creating a ruled mesh, which stitched the meshes.
