how to design complex shape analytical rigid body?


       In my work, I need to design some what complex geometry analytical rigid body. I can able to design the same part as 3D deformable body but not analytical rigid!!!!!!! please help me? 

Analytical rigid bodies are restricted to a few shapes: flat surface, cylinder, etc.

If you need a rigid part that is anything else, you must make a discrete rigid part. You build it just like you would a deformable part, except at the end you should turn it into a shell part. Also, you will need to assign it a reference point to apply BCs/forces to. Once that's complete you can mesh the rigid part with rigid elements to your desired seed sizes.
