How is it possible to model wall and ceiling slabs in a member model?

Answer

The "Nodal Constraint" feature allows you to ideally connect nodes.
There are two types of coupling that you can select.

In the case of the "Plane" coupling type, the displacements in the coupling plane as well as the rotations are coupled perpendicularly to the plane. Thus, you can model stiffening slabs, for example.

In the case of the "Equal Condition Constraint" coupling type, you can individually define the coupled displacements and rotations between the nodes.

The nodal constraint feature has been shown on Info Day. You can find this topic at the end of the attached video.
