Hello LeaG,

I suggest you open the geometry in SpaceClaim, make 4 planes through the center between each leg and slice that up into 8 segments. Go to the Workbench tab and click the Share button to have the mesh be connected at the nodes on the cut planes.

If this is a thin membrane, did you consider using a surface and shell elements instead of sweeping solid elements?

Regards,

Peter
