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.

Mesh Load Unit Question 1 Reply

Hi,I have a question about the mesh load unit. It seems Karamba only extracts values from Rhino, not the unit. For example, I work with [mm] in Rhino and I have a surface of 1000000[mm^2]. When I…Continue

Dear Karamba Team,

I love that you put examples on your website but unfortunately, some of them are not working anymore. For example:

- Large Deformation of a Shell

- Large Deformation of a Triangular Grid

I'm using the student version of Karamba 1.3.1. Please let me know what can cause the problem.

We will be hosting a Karamba3d workshop in Vienna from November 28-30. Its a great way to start to develop more advanced skills in optimization processes, programming and structural analysis.

Registration and further information can be found at https://www.karamba3d.com/workshops/.

Yes, there will be a Karamba3D version for Mac.

Best,

Clemens

A quick question: Now that Rhino 6 WIP for Mac is released, will there be a Karamba Version for Mac ?

Thank you, best wishes,

Rudi

Dear Jhoseph=),

could you please add a new discussion on the topic below? The comment wall is not a good medium for technical discussions.

Best,

Clemens

Hi, Karamba,

I purchased a student license a few hours ago, I'm aware that it might take 2 days for you to handle the process, but I have an assignment due next Monday, can you help me accelerate my request please? I'm really in a hurry.

The machine ID and payment credential were send to info@karamba3d.com.

Thank you so much!

Comment by Karamba3D on August 1, 2018 at 12:34am

Hi Vincent, it should not make a difference. Simply send us the machine-id file as is and if you encounter any issues, just email us.

best,

Matthew

Hi Niklas,

as this relates to an Octopus issue, you should post this query on the Octopus forums. Unfortunately we are unable to help with this specific issue.

Best,

Matthew

Hey there, 
I am trying to get familiar with the cross section optimization of bridges, but when I want to open the example from the Karamba website I got an error: 

Component Octopus {f0913905-0d71-4c22-b63d-60d6e6cf4cf6} failed to deserialize itself: Die Datei oder Assembly "HelixToolkit.Wpf, Version=2013.1.10.1, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=52aa3500039caf0d" oder eine Abhängigkeit davon wurde nicht gefunden. Das System kann die angegebene Datei nicht finden.

What am I doing wrong?
Did I open it with the wrong version of Octupus?

Thanks a lot, 

Niklas

Hi Kudrah,

i see that you are working with millimeters in your file. One thing is that Karamba interprets all units in meters. Therefore if you input geometry that is in your model 4000mm, it will interpret this as 4000m. This can be one issue causing the load densities. You can also increase the Length Segments slider in the Render Settings tab of the Model View to reduce the number of visible loads in the Model View.

best, Matthew
