Well the main problem is that a B-Rep model can not end up producing nonmanifold edges. The thing is a laser obviously has a kerf and your CAD application is intended to model the end result after cutting. Even a cut without a Kerf would produce a cavity with 4 sides. Obviously optimization like this is the CAM modules job.* But if you must like to suggest ...

A "bonded contact" is presumably the same as welding the parts together. Presumably, the material also has non-zero Poisson's ratio. A friction coefficient of 0.01 will allow the ends of the pin to expand radially as it is compressed. The small but non-zero friction coefficient will stop the compressed pin from being perfectly cylindrical as it ...
