          try running the solver after applying materials, restraints and forces. Then plot displacement to see where it is not behaving as intended and address that issue.

            The simplest solution is to use the split line tool (Features -> Curves -> Split Line). If your shell edges perfectly meet up with shell faces, you can use the "Intersection" option for splitting faces. By splitting faces, you enforce node alignment.


            Hope this helps.
