Overmolding two assembled plastic inserts

Good day all,


I have this project where I need to overmold two assembled inserts made from plastic.  From scheme attached to this post 1, 2 are assembled inserts and 3 is part which will be injected. So I want to run FEM analysis with MF to see if and how inserts 1 and 2 will be deformed because of pressure. And my question would be if it is possible to define contact between inserts 1, 2 and how to do that.


Thanks in advance,

In Moldflow you can mesh 3 parts at a time using precise match option, so negotiating with intersections, overlapps, etc. no need to define contact.

You cant define contact between parts here.
