Hi momidor,

What kkanade meant by a single part is "Single multibody part with 3 different bodies in DesignModeler" so bodies can be separate, with each having different material, only interfaces will be shared.

Moreover, your problem seems more of mesh sizing related, you can use smaller element size and turn off the mesh based defeaturing and see if that helps.

If you want connected mesh then you will have to create single part. 

Do following steps. 

Import .stp file

Select bodies in the model tree

Right click and use create new part. 

Now a new part will be created. You can still assign different types of steel to each body.

It's import from .stp file. I can't create single part for these three bodies because they are from three varius type of steel.

If you have geometry in Design Modeler, please create a single part for all bodies. This will give you conformal mesh between bodies. 

Please check following video.
