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.

Another question: I'm trying to reproduce the behaviour of these two structures that I observed in fusion 360 only using Karamba.

As you can see from the images the structure on the left have much less deformation, in Karamba they are almost the same what is happening here? The KAramba code is so much different from the fusion 360 one?

Dear xiufeng li, when internalizing structural objects in one version of Karamba3D it is sadly not possible to guarantee that they can be deserialized with another version of Karamba3D. I think this is what causes the problem here.

Best,

Clemens

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.

Comment by Pedro Abejaro on June 8, 2019 at 1:12pm

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.

Details can be found at https://karamba3d.com/workshops

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
