I am trying to use beam element as the rivet connection between 2 sheet metal parts. I used the fix Join for this connection (picture below)
I would expect that the beam's nodes will be connected to the surrounding nodes of the circle similar to when I use the Circular Beam to connect the part (picture below)
However, beam's nodes do not connect to the surrounding nodes by the end nodes, but by the middle node (picture below).
This problem still persist even when I put 1 beam element. Have you get the similar problem? Why does it occur? and How can I fix it?
Thank you in advance!
