Thanks for the input Rafal :smileyhappy: I've tried releasing "Edge 4" of the panel 459 as "pinned-pinned" but it seems to only release all edges as pinned, and after applying the release there is no was of checking which edge of an object has release conditions. Is it possible to specify only 1 linear edge release at the base of the stairs panel?


Example

Could you give a bit more guidance please on how I acheive the above please? I had nodes all over the building to start with but a lot of them have been removed during FE meshing, FE mesh removal (for editing), and panel alterations. I have quite a few cases where the wall panels seem to clash with the embedded RC columns and assumed Robot could distinguish between the two rather than having to manually (and painfully) separate panels from columns at all intersections?

 

See below.

Look also at difference between results.

Hi Rafal,

I've finally got a chance to go back and follow your advice concerning below:

 

"

. In practise the reinforcement will be lapped along edges, so is there a way of releasing the nodal corner only at the wall corner - slab?

No you can apply linear releases to panels. Divide \ create shorter edge nead the corner and apply there releases

"

 

But can't seem to find a way of neatly dividing a small L-shaped peice of the roof slab panel at the outward wall corner in the attached screenshot to remove the reinforcement spike?

Divide WITH node generation, then select panels edge.
