Opening in Shell & Shell+Beam

Hi,
A newbie here and trying to explore the oppurtinities that Karamba can bring to our daily tasks.
Two questions here.
Is that a possibility to have an opening in a shell structure?
Also, is there any possibility to place the beams and sheels on top of each other? As in the case of precast beams + slabs.

Hi,
yes, openings are possible, you just need to input a mesh that have the openings modelled.
Beams integrated into shells (ribs) can be defined by making sure your beam end points are integrated into your mesh input.
