When trying to create a beam to shell edge bond nothing happens. I can select all the components, but when I hit the checkmark, nothing happens.
Has anyone else had this problem?

if you have time try to define it as solid.
I know there are many SPR about it.
The work around I found was to increase the size of the shell until it overlapped a parallel face of the beam and live with the less accurate stresses.
what does the actual geometry look like and what is your goal for the analysis?
for me, i'd be bonding the face of the shell to the beam. i do not think you will get any better fidelity by trying to bond the edge of the shell to the beam.
and either way, i'd want to test the bonding method by comparing against solids first if that was an area of interest or that the connection is critical to the analysis.
