algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Karamba3D is an interactive, parametric finite element program. It lets you analyze the response of 3-dimensional beam and shell structures under arbitrary loads.
Karamba3D is being developed by Clemens Preisinger in cooperation with Bollinger und Grohmann ZTGmbH in Vienna.

Hi there, I'm trying to use Karamba iterating with a MOGA to create ribbed shells based on the bending stress analysis of a given initial shell. Consider leaf nerves a good reference. Questions:1. Is…Continue

Hello everyone.I'm new to Karamba and I'm wondering if it is possible to optimize the cross-section of a shell, but not by picking from a list of standardized cross-sections.The picture below is that…Continue
