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]
Hi everybody!!I have just downloaded and installed millipede but it doesn´t work. I am using Rhino5 64 and grasshopper 0.9.0061. When I start grasshopper, the program seems to load millipede, but when it is open, I cannot see the millipede…Continue

Hi all,I am a new user of Millipede.I would like to say if I can perform a non-linear analyis of a cable with generic condition of loads: I mean point loads with generic values and directions in a 3D space.In other words I would like to find the…Continue

Hi Panagiotis and Sawako,Thank you so much for sharing your amazing plug-in! It is so exciting and I love the graphics too :) Sorry I already have two very basic questions:-Is there a way to run millipede on both Rhino 4 and 5?So far I have it only…Continue
