    Thermal Simulation of multi-body vs. assembly

    edward omalley

      I'm getting different results of a thermal simulation of two parts that are mated together when I do it as a multi-body part vs. as an assembly.  The assembly model has a global bonded contact.  All boundary conditions are exactly the same.  The materials of each part are specified the same between the two models.  Is there a reason solidworks would treat these simulations differently?
