Modelling Flat Slabs in Karamba3D

Hi everyone,

I am trying to model a flat slab structure in karamba3D. I want to know how does karamba consider the connectivity between a column & a slab by default? I get one rigid body mode in the system and I think this is causing the rigid body mode in the system. " When analyzing a flat shell structure one has to lock the rotation perpendicular to the plate in at least one node."

I have attached a basic grasshopper definition for testing. Appreciate your help
