Multiple meshes, automatic mesh contact/tie?

This is something that I have been thinking.
Is it possible to automatically set the multiple mesh contacts/ties without defining them one by one?
The simplest solution would node merging by using certain radius to tie to the other meshes node?

Hi, the CGX command neigh generates the contact surfaces and the contact definitions for CCX based on face-to-face proximity. *tie MPC contact is used. Look in this example by M. Kraska


Thank you for the information. I’ve reviewed the guide for more on this neigh command.
What is the recommendation on the model? Can the contact surfaces overlap (for example a tight fit hole Ø14,9 and press-fit round bar Ø15) or do the simulation models have to be modeled face-to-face?
