block contact vertex-vertex command


block contact vertex-vertex b

Suppress the creation of vertex-vertex contacts by setting b to false. By default it is true and vertex-vertex contacts are created. Suppressing vertex-vertex contacts will decrease memory use and increase calculation speed in models composed of mostly tetrahedral blocks (e.g. imported from Griddle). A small difference in results may be observed when the vertex-vertex contacts are suppressed, but in general the differences are negligible.
