Hi

you have 2 ways:
1) in assembly modes with dedoubled boundaries, one can be coarse swep mesh, the other a finer tets or any other type (but this is not the way I would start with)

2) the default, you sweep your mesh, you select all boundries that are common to domains with TETH mesh and you apply a "mesh - convert node) such that all these boundaries have thereafter a triangular mesh (3 nodes), which is compliant with the teth mesh structure (4 nodes)

Good luck

Awesome it worked !!! Youre a genius man ;) Thanks a lot for the good work and advices.

For all who'll have this problem in time: I just refined the edges of the module in z y and x directions along the sandwich-element to make small elements possible because the rubber is nearly 1 mm thick so it fits best. Then i used the tool to convert nodes and made a diagonal line in the squares = 3 node elements. Then it worked perfectly.

Hi

Thanks, but I do not feel as a "genius" though,
I would rather say COMSOL is genius,

but I agree with all the liberty we have with this software there are many buttons available to tweak, it takes some time to learn them :)
