How can I consider the flexibility of adjacent objects that have no line release?

Answer

FAQ 002762 already explains the problem that the function of the line release can be problematic in the case of more than two objects to be released.

However, there is a rather simple solution for an adjacent member: The member or line node adjacent to the line release is simply placed in the line release.

Figure 01 and the video show this step.
