Hi,

In the below pic you can see the number contacting is negative, why is it negative?

Best regards!

Hi Adisa, 

For MPC-based contact definitions, the value of STAT can be negative. This indicates that one or more contact constraints were intentionally removed to prevent over-constraint. See PLESOL command docs.

Is this what you are using?

Also, checkout this useful article of contact tools.

Regards,

Sandeep

Hi Adisa,

In the contact tracker, try switch between contact and target side to view the number in contact. Since auto-symmetric contact is used, solver might have flipped the contact and target sides.
