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.

If I use the last version of Karamba and I need to know the best sections of the beams do I need to use galapagos or is it ok to use the option of the best beam?

Comment by karamba on November 1, 2016 at 1:58pm

Hello Alexia, Karamba is a Finite Element toolkit and thus does not depend on national specifications. The only exeption is the cross section optimization algorithm which is based on Eurocode 3.

second order theory (Th.II) could you pls help me understand what this theory is called in Italian? is Karamba ok to do the analysis in Italy?

Hi Marco,

the image is similar to the setup in the example on our website. You can adjust the element felting settings to and add additional parameters to achieve different results.

Hi All!

does anyone know how to make this kind of image?

I saw different image like this made from Robert ( Hi Robert ) but I wasn't able.

Best,

Marco

Hi all!

Karamba 1.2.0 is now available! The latest release contains a new solver that is twice as fast and uses less memory. New components such as the BESO for Shells and Deformation Energy have been introduced. The entire list of updates and bug-fixes can be found at http://www.grasshopper3d.com/group/karamba/page/new-features-and-bu.... Look out for some new examples coming soon.

It can be downloaded from our website or from food4rhino. Enjoy!

New tutorials showing workflow between Karamba and Revit using Geometry Gym and Dynamo are up on our youtube and Grasshopper pages! The full definitions will follow shortly!

Dear all,

in case of questions please open new discussions (see above). They are easier to find and to follow than entries on the comment wall.

Best,

Clemens

Hi, Rafael! I did, but i didn't manage to get what i wanted. I used the prescribed displacement component with an input vector and a force acting on the points of the prescribed displacement hoping that once the amplitude of the vector is reached, the points don't move any further, but they di surpass the length of the vector...

Comment by Rafael Pastrana on April 20, 2015 at 5:23am

Hi Andrei, have you had a look to the "prescribed displacement" component? I guess this one will help you out with what you want. cheers, Rafael.
