How can I connect an area of bars flexibly?


There are many ways to tie a surface to rods in an articulated manner. On the one hand, the surface could be defined in a frame system or the like with an eccentricity and a coupling (Figure 1). This rigid rod is then connected articulated. This is explained in more detail in this article.
As a practicable approximation, it may also be sufficient to connect the subsequent rods all articulated (Figure 2).
Further options exist, for example, with the option of node sharing. This possibility is explained in more detail in this article.
