HELP for Ansys sheet metal forming

  1. Jun 15, 2011 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I want to do small lenght pipe forming analysis in ansys, I added forming mechanism design picture.I need help and advice some issues.

    as shown in picture , through the cylindirical mechanism and press lever, flat sheet metal is formed a pipe.

    I have imported assembly model (parasolid form) directly to ansys classic multiphysic/LS-DYNA , I can't find a trick for contact problem, which element type I should use for parts, and how is contact parts exactly with each other especially tought that rotational movement cylindirical forming mechanism parts, I should use a pilot node ?
