algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Hey Rayaan

Great plugin you've created! I am working with it at the moment and its proving very useful. However I was wondering if you are planning on including SHS in shape definitions of sections? I checked the script on Github and I see SHS are not explicitly accepted. I tried various ways to define SHS in my model but every push to IS failed. Thank you :)

I am quite new to KarambaIDEA and I think it has huge potential but I am also having some difficulty with SHS. 

I have tried to use the inbuilt weld all templates however when the joint opens in IdeaStatica all the operations have been replaced with contact operations. This creates a singularity as the members are not actually connected.

I have also tried creating my own template using the cut operation. This same issue occurs.

I would be interested to know if anybody had managed to use SHS in any of their joints.

Hi Alexander,

I think this is fixed in the most recent version.
You can download it from the package manager found in the rhino command line.

Hi @ryaan Ajouz,

Thanks for the response. I have updated via. the package manager but now the plugin seems to get stuck on the Running IDEA StatiCa. I have checked with some of the 2.6 example files and I have the same issue. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Alex

Can you share the file?

Hi Rayaan, 

The screenshot above is from KarambaIDEA_Example_Truss.gh

I have tried on my own files and a couple of the example files from food for Rhino.

Do I need to replace all the components in the definition manually using the updated version? 

The window pops up but then I look at task manager it is not using any memory or CPU.

Many thanks in advance for your help. :)

Alex

The best thing to do is to delete all old files and download the latest version from the package manager. The new example files are now incorperated with the plug-in download. Once installed via the package manager, you can find the files here:

hi Rayaan I met this same problems, 

and what I test also stuck in the Interface of Running Idea  this step

And I unistall the 2.64version, return back to previous version of KarambaIDEA,   that running is working 

Hi,

I found the bug, the needed dll is not merged correctly with the plug-in. I will try to fix this and publish a new version.

For now, it is better to use previous version.

Hi Habiba,

SHS should work as well. Are you using Karamba3D up front? You could change the sections to SHS sections and this should do the trick.

The shape of SHS is defined as "[]" similar to RHS sections.

Let me know wether this helps you.
You can also share your script or screenshots if needed.

BR,
Rayaan
