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.

Column cross section sizing

I have created a simple building model with columns/beams and have tried to set up different models to see the impacts of different cross section sizes once I have changed the span size and some…Continue

thanks for your reply.hope it will be as powerful as the general fea software, such as sap& midas. good job. i am learning it now.

Karamba is an interactive finite element program for frames and trusses.

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.
