Is it possible to create a scissors hinge between surfaces?


It is possible to realize a scissors hinge between surfaces by means of line releases. In the attached model, a line release has been created on line 5, which releases surfaces 3 and 4. Since surfaces 3 and 4 also automatically refer to the newly generated line 8, the scissors hinge is correctly defined.
