Problem with writing shells in ETABS

Problem with writing shells in ETABS

Problem with writing shells in ETABS

Hello guys,

After creating the building model, I checked the model and did not get any errors.
However, when trying to create the model alive in ETABS, in the connections between the floors and the walls of the elevator shaft, stiff elements are automatically generated by the program at all the floor levels.
When I run the model and check again, I get warnings like: storyx FY&Fz are too close.
I deleted these elements and tried to create the model alive but I get the following message: 'unable to write shells' and then another message saying 'unable to greate model to run'
Have any of you encountered a similar problem? Namely with the generation of stiff elements?
Thanks in advance
