I would like to add a line release on a component in my model. However, this is not accepted. How can I handle this?


Line releases on components are currently not possible.
If the linear release properties are concerned, it is possible to quickly arrange them as line releases of the components.
In the case of the nonlinear release properties, it is necessary to use the components. For this, the "Convert Intersection into Line" option is useful. You can find this function in the shortcut menu of the generated intersection line. Then, you can create a boundary of the surface by using a new line and assign the line release.
