generative 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]
Having some issue with Millipede on r5 64bit. I downloaded the appropriate file from your site for this version. The plug in will not show up in my tabs. Also, I noticed the r5 download has directions for r4. Maybe it is the wrong file? Thanks.…Continue

Hello,I was wondering if there is any possibility to add a material definition to the 3D topology optimization. While other programs force me to pick a certain material, millipede doesn't.Loads are applied in N/m^2, but shouldn't the load refer to a…Continue
