algorithmic modeling for Rhino
karamba is an interactive, parametric finite element program. It lets you analyze the response of 3-dimensional beam and shell structures under arbitrary loads.
karamba is being developed by Clemens Preisinger in cooperation with Bollinger-Grohmann-Schneider ZTGmbH Vienna.

Hello,I've created a parametric tower in Grasshopper and want to play around with Karamba. However, it doesn't work. Seeing many tutorials, it seems to me that first I need to create a surface, then…Continue

Can you comment on the method in which the Optimize Cross Section function addresses a MaxDisp target? I am working with concrete shell elements and, even though there are larger cross sections to…Continue

Hiya,I'm trying to implement a solution that would stop the optimiser from selecting sections that exceed the SLS.. If I understand correctly, the optimiser isn't taking the location deflection into…Continue
