Important(updated on March, 12th, 2014)
I switched linear algebraic library called from Ricecooker and now the following library must be installed in advance to the installation of Ricecooker.

Sho 2.1 on IronPython 2.7
Make sure to install Sho 2.1 on IronPython 2.7.

A better linear algebraic library will be sought further but this library is the best choice so far.

Hello Dr. Miki and every one.

I set the model( cable-strut with a membrane) on the Ricecooker.

I use 2node/line element for cable, 2node rigid bar for strut and 4 node/quad/tri element for- membrane.

I set the p=4, 2 for a cable a membrane,respectively. But I don’t know the suitable the value of weight.

- I use no gravity for all elements, is it true?

-  I don’t know the main order of the form-finding, in the other word I can set the model and I don't know how form-finding this model.

Even the short explains will help me.

best regards.
