algorithmic modeling for Rhino
The solution to this simple problem is obvious to human intelligence, maximize the sliders to get the stiffest truss. But it's an interesting demonstration of combining Galapagas and SAP2000 using the Geometry Gym Connectors. 3 variable inputs have been defined, number of truss segments and dimensions of chords and cross members. The fitness function criteria is to minimize deflection for a point load, a pending improvement is minimizing truss mass to achieve required deflection.
