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.

Mesh Load Unit Question 1 Reply

Hi,I have a question about the mesh load unit. It seems Karamba only extracts values from Rhino, not the unit. For example, I work with [mm] in Rhino and I have a surface of 1000000[mm^2]. When I…Continue

Hi Xavier,

you need to update your Rhino to the latest release in order to run Karamba. The latest Karamba release can also be found on our website.

I am getting an error when trying to open a grasshopper file with kangaroo and karamba components. I am new to both grasshopper and karamba and was wondering how to better understand the error message and where I can download or access the correct plugins.

So far I am not able to find the versions of the plugins mentioned in either of the error boxes.

Thank you!

A new scripting guide with examples for Karamba 1.3.2 can be downloaded from https://www.karamba3d.com/download/#manual.

All Karamba3D licenses issued so far work for Karmba3D 1.3.1.

I have updated to Rhino 6.14.19118.. Before this i used karamba3d 1.2.2 in a early version of rhino6. My question is if it is possible to update my student license from Karamba3d 1.2.2 to 1.3.1? the main reason for this is because i want to check KarambaIDEA plugin and it is only available for Karamba 1.3.1

Thank you in advance!

We are glad to be once again hosting a Karamba3D workshop in Vienna.

July 3-5 2018

Early bird rates until May 10.

Hi Wilinton, could you please open a new discussion for the topic? There it would be easier to communicate.
You definition is quite large and complex. For debugging try the divide and conquer method: Split up the definition into meaningful parts and test the parts individually.

Best,

Clemens

Hi all. I am modeling a metal cover, but I have designed it separately (beams and belts separately); I've done that because I designed all the coverage together and then I designed it in the sap or etabs program and compared the results and they were very different (I did not have this design ordered, but I did it in a quick way to check, so I did not I upload said file). 

My question is how can I get equal results in both grasshopper (karamba) and in Sap or Etabs; what conditions should I take into account to model the entire coverage and what should be considered in the beam-belt nodes (intersection node)?.
IMetal%20Coverage.gh upload my file in grasshopper where I design beam and strap separately, but the visualization is of all coverage. I hope you can help me. Thank you.

Hi Lu,

I will take a look at it. Best C.

So further I go in Beijing with the ability taking your two great help  in Vienna

May I ask a little thing, the 4 BESO  in karamba rhino6 testExamble is not work, is there anyway to get those download to see how the example wors?
