Hello David, we will update Karamba as soon as possible.

Karamba does not appear to be working in the latest build of Grasshopper.  Are there plans to update Karamba for future use?  I have been using it quite a bit and would greatly appreciate any help that Karamba can give.  Thanks!

Try to select 'Show All Components' in Grasshopper menu 'View'. Does that help?

Karamba is an interactive finite element program for frames and trusses.
Comment by stjackin on July 6, 2011 at 11:24pm

is this addon something like sap2000 component? for frame structure ?

A simple definition using the 'BESO' and 'resulting element forces' - components of the latest release to evolve a topology and get evenly distributed axial stress.
