3D Contact doesn't work and parts penetrate - what to do in these cases

Hi,
in COSMOS Motion 2008 I'm more used to stepping into contact issues: you create a 3D contact between two parts and they penetrate anyway.
Here's what I do, which in most cases seems to work:
- increase geometry precision in the COSMOS Motion options
- Choose use precise 3D contact

If it does not work I ususally increase the number of frames, in order to have a smaller time step for calculations and be able to capture events that occur in verty short time.

What's your strategy in similar cases ?
