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.
Hello everyone.I am new in using Millipede and I wanted to do a structural analysis of a gyroid box.Could anyone check if I'm doing it right? I'm currently just looking at self-weight and fixed boundary conditions with no extra loads. The normal…Continue

Hi.I've been working (having fun) with millipede, and I really enjoy and learn a lot using this excellent software..Just two things I've found: I'm not sure but I think there is a mistake in weight output calculation @ fe solver module... as I get…Continue

Hi guys,After downloading the Millipede plugin, what is the installation procedure to do ? I tried to drag and drop the .gha file into grasshopper canvas but nothing happened, I even tried to copy paste it in the special folder as well .. how can I…Continue
