algorithmic modeling for Rhino
First proof of concept Grasshopper definition for interactive modelling (changing the topology and properties) of a form-active structural assembly (of bending beams and cables in this case). Also demonstrates two modes of analysis: 1) A graph representation of the assembly with beams/cables as nodes and their connectivity data (i.e. where along the elements they connect) as edges. 2) An bending stress analysis of the beams based on local curvature.
Developed by Anders Holden Deleuran (CITA) in Rhino/Grasshopper (McNeel/David Rutten) using Kangaroo2 (Daniel Piker), GraphViz and NetworkX implemented in GHPython (Giulio Piacentino/Steve Baer).
