algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I am just running through the tutorials (1st simple beam set-up) and when trying to run the solver I get an error "1. Solution exception:Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
I double-checked the settings and it looks right to me.
What seems to be the problem?
Can you please send me the rhino file with the defined geometry, so that I can try reproduce the error and hopefully find its origin?
Here are the files.
I think the design space in your example was very coarse and couldn't obtain a reasonable finite element discretization. I scaled it up and updated some of the settings - note that you need at least one of the supports to fix both x and y.
Also - it seems that the plugin version you are using is slightly different - at least visually some of the tags are different. It may be OK but I suggest to download the current version.
Attached are the updated files, I tested them and it seems to run smoothly. Let me know if any further problems are encountered.
Ok seems like object needs to be scaled up to increase discretization resolution - also as you said need to constrain at least one of the supports for x and y.
I am using the latest version downloaded from Food4Rhino. Thanks a lot for the help.
