Hi all, I want to relax a surface, So I made a mesh surface form that surface and then relaxed it (using Kangaroo) (so basically I relaxed a mesh), as a result of relaxation, I've got another mesh. I…Continue

### Triangulate mesh3 Replies

All, How can I have a triangulate mesh on a free form surface?I have made a quad mesh as you see in the image, but cannot do it for triangulate one!Any comment?Please take a look at the GH…Continue

### Unit problem in Kangaroo2 Replies

I am trying to use Kangaroo for dynamic relaxation of a gridshell, My question is how to find the stiffness? The gridshell is made of steel pipes, so I have the properties of the elements.(OD= 15cm,…Continue

Hi all, It might be so simple question but I'm a little bit confused:I want to know is Anchor points in Kangaroo work like Fixed connections? Meaning that they can resist vertical and horizontal…Continue

"Hi David,  I have a similar problem with a GH_Structure(of GH_Number). I've written a code that perfectly functions in Grasshopper, but when I build it as a GHA, it gives an error because it cannot do a multiplication between a GH_Number…"

"Thanks for the info. Two more questions: 1) there is no way that I pass the range other than slider? 2) WHAT is the slider in the pareto frontier? Is it narrowing down the pareto frontier?"

### Octopus

Octopus is seen as an extension to Galapagos by introducing multiple fitness values to the optimization. The best trade-offs between those objectives are searched, producing a set of possible optimum solutions that ideally reach from one extreme trade-off to the other uniformly. Results are shown in a two- to five-dimensional, 3D-navigable solution-viewport. User-preferences on specific solutions can be specified when the optimization is paused, so the further optimization gets densfied around…See More

karamba replied to M NICK's discussion Optimize Cross Section in the group karamba
"Hi Massa, the cross sections that come out of the 'disassemble model'-component know to which elements they belong to. You could use these for re-assembling the model. Best, Clemens"

### Optimize Cross Section

Hi all, When I optimize cross section, after disassemble the model and then the elements, I want to have each designed cross section written on the elements, how can I do that?ThanksMassaSee More

karamba replied to M NICK's discussion Von Mises Stress in the group karamba
"Hi Nick, there is no Von Mises Stress output for beams in Karamba. The reason is that the maximum shear stress and normal stress normally occur in different places of a beam cross section: the peak axial normal stress at the outer cross section…"

### Von Mises Stress

Hi, Does anyone know how to find von mises stress in the beam elements using Karamba?Thanks,NickSee More

"Robert,  I am wondering to ask you how to find the maximum 'von mises' resultant stress in each member? Where can I find that? Thanks Masa"

### Weaverbird - Topological Mesh Editor

Weaverbird is a topological modeler that contains many of the known subdivision and transformation operators, readily usable by designers. Instead of doing the work repeatedly, or sometimes using complicated scripts, this plug-in helps reconstructing shapes as meshes, subdivides and refines even polyline lists, and helps preparing the model for fabrication. Weaverbird is the first released addon for Grasshopper but the group is new, so please join it to participate in discussions, ask questions…See More

David Stasiuk replied to M NICK's discussion surface relaxation
"It looks like your initial surface is untrimmed, which is good...and the mesh you've built from it is regular.  You should be able to use "surface from points" pretty easily, as the key is having your points properly ordered.…"
