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. For this, select the menu option Tools → Connect Lines/Members or use the corresponding button in the toolbar. In the work window, simply draw a window across the area where the elements should be connected (see Figure 02). It is not necessary to completely capture the objects.
