An alternative to the join-intersect method used to perform share topology operation when using the Ansys Fluent Meshing watertight geometry workflow is the Interface Connect method. This lesson is part two of a two-part series on using the Share Topology feature of the watertight workflow and will focus on the intersect connect method. We will dig into the finer details of this method and understand how and when to use it. We will also look into the requirement of labeling the overlapping or connected surfaces at the CAD creation level to improve the robustness and speed of the method.
