The Connect feature may be used to align and possibly join a set of vertices, edges or faces. The alignment takes the form of a stretching and aligning of existing geometry.

Entities may be connected that are coincident to within a tolerance that is specified as a property of the feature. Vertices, edges or faces may be selected through the Apply/Cancel button property. It is possible to select entities for which subsets are determined to be coincident to within the user-specified tolerance. When this is the case, the program will identify and connect the entities in each of the subsets.

Starting from Release 15.0, the Connect feature can be used after the Share Topology feature to selectively share faces between bodies. See Selective Shared Topology: Using Connect after Share Topology for more details.

In this tutorial you will learn how to use Connect tool in Ansys DesignModeler.

We share the same tutorial using ANSYS Fluent.

Some import types (ACIS and AutoCAD) allow you to specify the units of the imported model. Before clicking Generate, you may be able to change the model units from the Details View, depending on the type of import. Note that some model types store their units, so no Model Units property will appear when importing them.
