In case you missed the original announcement, Scan&Solve™ for Rhino is a new plugin from Intact Solutions that completely automates basic structural testing of Rhino solids. No simplification, healing, translating, or
meshing is needed.
See these videos for a quick demonstration of Scan&Solve in action: http://www.scan-and-solve.com/video/simple-stress-testhttp://www.scan-and-solve.com/video/small-features-part-1-specify
The latest beta version of Scan&Solve™ for Rhino is available at www.scanandsolve.com
This version adds a significant new feature- GRAVITY. Simply choose the material for your shape, select restraints, and check the Gravity checkbox. Click the [Go] button to see the performance of your shape under it's own weight:

This version also incorporates several improvements in reliability and user interaction. Localization issues are now handled better without warnings about missing dlls. The user interface has been updated to allow user input only when Scan&Solve is capable of responding. The documentation is now easier to find through a shortcut in Windows' Start Menu. We've also added documentation on manually modifying the material database
