  1. I have a simple curved plate made up of two solidworks surfaces (meshed these with shell elements) and I want designate the line that separates the two surfaces with beam elements and make the mesh coincident, my question is will I be able to accomplish this using the base assembly simulation package?  (I would prefer not to use contact elements if I can help it).
  2. Does simulation allow any type of scripting  to dictate analysis commands, say for instance like Ansys APDL or Python scripting.
