    improper or no target define for contact element

    Hamiti Abd Elghani

      Hi everybody,
      I'm new on solidWorks simulation, so maybe I did something wrong, but here is my problem:
      I have to do a static study of a frame  which is  composed on beams and four  metal sheets with gussets. the structure will be supported by the four metal sheets.
      I kept global contact as default ( bonded) and I created contact set between the metal sheets, gussets and the beams on which the sheets are welded.
      I fixed the sheets and put the load on the structure: gravity + weight supposed to be supported by the structure.
      When I run the analysis after meshing, this message appears: "improper or no target define for contact element XXXX"
      Could someone help? I'm lost!!

      Thank you.
