Karamba3D

Karamba3D is a parametric structural engineering tool which provides accurate analysis of spatial trusses, frames and shells.

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.

Could it be a render scale / visualization issue? @Arthur

Arthur. It shouldn’t have that big difference. Could you share your file? Have you check the global reaction ? Are they the same?

Hi,

I have a question on the shell analysis.

For shells, is the analysis mesh independent?

Same settings except for the mesh topology, but the result is so different.

Hi Wilinton,

you have to update your Rhino in order to run the latest version of Karamba. Otherwise you can use a previous installation of Karamba.

I am new to this and would like you to help me ... Thank you.

Hi,

there is no fixed date yet. Karamba3D basically runs on the Mac, the main issue is the installation procedure.

Comment by Garikundesu on December 2, 2018 at 1:24am

Hi,

On the 30th of August 2018, a member of Karamba (Clemens) replied that there will be a Mac version. Any information on the ongoing development or a release date anytime soon ?

The latest WIP of Rhino 6 Mac are more and more stable as long as the built in grasshopper are throwing less and less exceptions.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Dear Karamba Team,

I love that you put examples on your website but unfortunately, some of them are not working anymore. For example:

- Large Deformation of a Shell

- Large Deformation of a Triangular Grid

I'm using the student version of Karamba 1.3.1. Please let me know what can cause the problem.

We will be hosting a Karamba3d workshop in Vienna from November 28-30. Its a great way to start to develop more advanced skills in optimization processes, programming and structural analysis.

Registration and further information can be found at https://www.karamba3d.com/workshops/.
