Grasshopper

algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Hello again!

 

I was wondering how I can get the reaction forces at the restraints. I can't seen to find the right query and result components for this. Is it supported?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Michael,

 

Thanks a lot for the post, it's always great get requests and suggestions from users.

If you download today's build of the plugin from http://www.geometrygym.com/downloads you'll find two new components, one to extract reaction forces and the other to extract the reaction moments.

 

If you've other ideas or requirements, I look forward to hearing them.  One aspect I'll add soon is a way to identify the location of the maxima/minima of the set.

 

Cheers,

 

Jon

Jon,

 

As usual, it works beautifully! I noticed the name of the data is incorrect, I suppose it is a minor fix (see attachment). (I use one solver and cull the right data).

 

Also, I have been meaning to ask: When I try to change the section type in the <sdrCP> component, Rhino crashes after stating I need to obtain a license. But I already have a license which I applied together with the SSI for GSA license. Is this a bug? What should I do?

Again, thanks a million for your help. My thesis is coming along nicely. I hope to upload a video on how SSI helps the project in the next week!

Hi Michael,

 

Glad to hear the license issue is resolved.  Thanks again for the report, the next build I will upload later today adds some more information to the result label you have identified.

 

I do advise having a single solver and either culling, or using list indexing to extract different results.  Multiple solvers will slow down the process by duplicating the model exchange efforts.

 

I look forward to seeing the tools applied to your thesis.

 

Cheers,  Jon
