How to add parts without re-assigning materials, contacts, bcs?

Hi there,

I’m working on a project with complex geometry in which I would like to compare results between different simulations. I want to add or change parts and see the effect on the results but can’t seem to change one part without having to re-assign bcs, contacts, and materials. The contacts and boundary conditions take a long time to assign and I would like to keep them constant between simulations.

Is there a way to do this in SimScale? I saw that there was a forum question about this a few years ago in which it didn’t sound possible, but not sure if that has changed since 2017? Adding additional CAD elements to existing simulation

Thanks,
Rachel

Hey Rachel!

Very good question and I have forwarded your request to my colleagues, we will get back to you soon!

All the best and take care,
