algorithmic modeling for Rhino



Millipede is a structural analysis and optimization component for grasshopper. It allows for very fast linear elastic analysis of frame and shell elements in 3d, 2d plate elements for in plane forces, and 3d volumetric elements. All systems can be optimized using built in topology optimization methods and have their results extracted and visualized in a variety of ways.

In addition millipede implements a few basic geometric features [extraction of iso surface meshes from volumetric scalar fields or and extraction of curved contours over any mesh] and a few numerical analysis tools [Fast fourier transforms in 1 and 2 dimensions, sparse linear system solver and eigenvalue calculation for large matrices using functionality from the intel math kernel library]

The new version of millipede includes the surface reparameterization module that enables the generation of vector field aligned patterns over any mesh. This functionality is particularly useful for the creation of principal stress aligned grid shells and reinforcement patterns.

Millipede in Mac 1 Reply

Hello all,I am new in the forum, I wanted to ask if there is any way to work Millipede in Mac? I have downloaded and used lots of other plug ins in Grasshopper, even when they don't indicate Apple logo near the description, it worked. But for…Continue

Problems in iso surface

Hello, i have an equation and i am trying to make a iso surface which as show in figure.What i want to do is , on side of iso surface should have more members compared to it's opposite need, the surface should look like it is morphing.…Continue

how can i take 3d mesh output of millipede to kangaroo2 for mesh refinement ? the mesh does not give the correct constrain points (of support and load region given as input in milipede) to kangaroo2 as anchor points.Continue
