hi,
4,5 and 6 are not modeled by nodal constraint. you should set FrameElement2Node.HingedAtStart and FrameElement2Node.HingedAtEnd properties.
edit:
if this is answer to your question, you should mark it with "Mark as answer"
edit2:
number 4 is Constraint.Free on node (which is by default) and no need to hing beams at those ends.

Sorry my mistake.
