I'm trying to apply 3-D contact between two flat surfaces, however it doesnt let me highlight bothe surfaces?

Solved! Go to Solution.
No can do. Here is the blurb from the Wildfire 5 documentation:

Is there ways round this say for example use rounds on the edges or make one of the faces a segment of a cylinder with a radius so large that it is practically flat?
or any other suggestions?
Thanks

Basically, yes. What I've done in the past is created an extra surface tangent with the flat surface I actually intend to contact.
One way to dodge this problem without adding rounds is to use plane to swarm of points in 3D conection.
In this video coin has bunch of points on his flat surfaces.
Thanks. That looks like a really good idea.
How do I create a point swarm?
In coin case I made bunch of datum points on coins outer edge. Then just use 3D contact and select them all and surface of box. You just need to define zone size around points how big you want it to be. Creo will treat each point as a sphere of mentioned size when analysing contact with flat surface.
