Dividing bar creates isolatet nodes

Hello,

I'm having problems inserting some intermediary supports for a bar element.

Currently i have a 12 meter bar with the endpoints defined as supports.

But i need a support every 3 meter. To do this i tried two methods:

 

1) i selected one end node and copied at 3m and then at 6m and so on.

2) i selected the bar, and used "Edit -> Divide"  command. I thicked the option "Generate nodes without bar/edge division"

 

In both cases the problem is that when verifing the model i get "isolated nodes" warning and after the calculation, results show a connection only at the end points for the bar.

This can be also seen if i look at the nodes properties, the "Adjoining elements" filed is empty.

 

I want to pin the bar onto the supports at 3m not only at its endpoints. How can i do that?

Please use plain text.

Nvm, i found out what i was missing. 

I should regenerate a computational model: Analysis->Generation of a computational model

 

Sorry, for posting too early :smileyembarrassed:

The general remark addressed to all users of Robot:

 

Please run model generation before running model verification. This will solve a lot questions that otherwise would need to be taken care of such as e.g. no material assigned to a panel :smileyhappy: Thank you.
