Is it possible to create a scissors hinge between surfaces?


You can model 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 Surface 3 and Surface 4. Since Surfaces 3 and 4 also refer to the newly generated Line 8 automatically, the scissors hinge is defined correctly.
