How can I model a lintel?


For the modelling, it is not possible to initially use an offset as this is generated internally by using a rigid member from the source node to the member, and thus the cantilever is not considered in the surface. Instead, it is necessary to generate extensions on both sides. In the end, the lintel thus consists of three members, as shown in Figure 01.
