Hello,

A singular error is when a node is completely free in 1 or more DOF and is allowed to undergo rigid body movement. In your model file, both the horizontal or vertical elements are pin-pin connected, so the nodes at the connecting of beam and column are free. Change those condition to apply beam end release on the only one of the horizontal or vertical elements.
Thank you.


Best regards,
