algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Millipede is a structural analysis and optimization component for grasshopper. It allows for very fast linear elastic analysis of frame and shell elements in 3d, 2d plate elements for in plane forces, and 3d volumetric elements. All systems can be optimized using built in topology optimization methods and have their results extracted and visualized in a variety of ways.
In addition millipede implements a few basic geometric features [extraction of iso surface meshes from volumetric scalar fields or and extraction of curved contours over any mesh] and a few numerical analysis tools [Fast fourier transforms in 1 and 2 dimensions, sparse linear system solver and eigenvalue calculation for large matrices using functionality from the intel math kernel library]
The new version of millipede includes the surface reparameterization module that enables the generation of vector field aligned patterns over any mesh. This functionality is particularly useful for the creation of principal stress aligned grid shells and reinforcement patterns.
When I tried the FFmesn component,the results were always mistake,beacause the mesh contained some triangular faces.If the mesh contained all quad faces,the results were right.So I want to know if the ffmesh component must be quads mesh? ThanksContinue

I made a frame model 1.jpg in the attachment,and made the beam optimisation ,as you can see in the attachment 3.jpg.I can't understand the result at all .Some of beams getthin almost the radius is 0.Dose it mean we don't need this beam or just thin…Continue
