generative modeling for Rhino
Hi Im very new to grasshopper/ Kangaroo etc...
So basically Im trying to construct a triangular tensegrity simplex, but replacing one set of cables with a membrane as the tensional element. In the attempt posted below i have tried using geometry gym to relax the mesh to give it a material quality, however haven't been successful ( its wobbles a bit, thats all). Should I relax it with kangaroo by using the strut ends as anchor points.... or perceiver with geometry gym
Anyway a bit stuck so any suggestions or examples would be excellent..
Thanks in advanced,
Does your university have access to any structural analysis software?
Robot is available free to students, I should test what results can be obtained with it's non linear solver.
I don't think native geometry gym components have sufficent functionality to accurately formfind this yet, I have seen examples of kangaroo with this though.
For interest, I set up a tensegrity test using Oasys gsa here:
Have a go with this
Thanks guys, this has been an excellent help.
Thanks for the files Daniel, makes alot more sense now- seems fairly simple too.
Jon, not sure about what software the uni has, we mainly work off our own laptops. Is Robot a plug in for grasshopper? never heard of it but definitely keen to have a go, especially as its free for students!
