Steel design

I have modelled a full building with a lot steel columns.

The columns are not totally fixed in reality so I want to calculate them as pinned-pinned to obtain a safe result.

However, changing the releases on the columns gives me a ton of warrings because there is to many degrees of freedom.


I am wondering if there is another way of doing this or do I have to model the column again in 2D frame and change the releases there?

Try to use partial releases instead.
