algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Rough check that the bending behaviour in Kangaroo is physically correct.
It works in 3D too, but this is a little harder to show in this way.

Special thanks to Chris Williams, Sam Joyce and Moritz Fleischmann !

Hi Daniel

The file "bendingexample.ghx" is not downloaded when i use the link? Can you share it again?

Thank you!

nice! very usefull!

Hi Henning - try without joining the lines going into the geometry input

great thing!

tried to modify the bendingexample.ghx in the manner that the rod changes its stiffness - but failed. can anybody help? thanks!

Thanks all. Harri - yes it works for closed lines.

Here is a definition of something like your image:

It has sliders for how many points you pull from and how strongly towards the centre.


The actual behaviour of a sheet is a little more complicated though, as the shear resistance comes into play. There are some examples of tackling this here:

I've played with carbon raods to and tryed to simulate that, this is ging to be a great help, hope to discuss this and other stuff in SG2011!


C u Soon

I really like this lo-tech test for hi-tech purpose :D Slightly contrasting :)
