During the calculation in SHAPE‑THIN, the warning No. 280345 displayed in Figure 01 appears: "Elements are crossing without connection. Do you wish to interrupt the plausibility check?” What can I do?


The elements can be connected by using the "Connect Lines/Members" tool. To access this function, use the menu Tools → Connect Elements or the corresponding toolbar button. In the work window, simply draw a window over the area where the elements are to be connected (Figure 2). It is not necessary to completely capture the objects.
