Warning messages!!!!

Hi all! I am receiving warning messages and it is saying structure is unstable or ill-conditioned....I ran it using standard solver to locate the issues. Found out that the problem is with the joints located in the shear walls (see fig). Can you guys please help me what might be the issues with these joints? And how can I tackle this. Thanks in advance.

RE: Warning messages!!!!

Can you show an image of the overall model? Think about what restrains those joints from rotating about the joint's X-axis, are your walls released out of plane in some manner?

RE: Warning messages!!!!

This is how it looks.

RE: Warning messages!!!!

Your walls don't look connected properly. See how there's gaps in the first picture?


Why yes, I do in fact have no idea what I'm talking about
