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.

Hello, 

I am working on branching column fabric formwork system and I have 2 doubts:

1) how can I take the kangaroo solid concrete element to karamba analysis for stress

2) how can I module the branching column line element path in karamba according to the given load

My aim is to optimise the fabric formed vertical system in-terms of reducing the stress and volume and form-finding of this system to the given load and support conditions

Hi all Is it possible to create other cross sections? And if that is possible, how can I do that ?, some reference (book, chapter, ....) Thank you

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

Comment by Marco Pellegrino on December 12, 2018 at 12:47pm
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.

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.
