SAP Non-Linear does a pretty good job and will self generate most hinge characteristics.  If your model is complex though, it runs like... well, sap.  Support was decent as well.  Also, the color coded step output makes the structure's inelastic behavior easily understood.

how well is it working for you, how good is the
"support," are there any significant laminations, bug
problems, etc.?
