Panel geometry

Hi,

 

Is there a requirement that Panels must be flat. I try to define a panel by 4 nodes but the geometry of the panel is such that it is not flat ( or distorted ). As the result the panel was considered seperated from other elements.

 

What should i do to define a distorted panel or surface element?

 

Cheers.

A panel doesn't have to be flat at all. My assumption is that it just doesn't match to geometry of other part of the model.
