    How to get rid of unwanted rigid elements?

    George Bon

      Hi all,

       

      I have a mixed mesh with shells and weldments on the following part:

      When I mesh it I am getting long rigid elements (the dark grey ones) between weldment joints that are pretty far apart and seem unrelated as shown below:

      This will obviously stiffen the structure and produce incorrect results. I tried playing with the joints settings without success.

      So I am wondering if someone has a solution to this, and also what are the rules for the automatic creation of those rigid elements? This is not the first model where this happens.

       

      Thanks,
