Compression vs Tension


I want to use Karamba3D to calculate concrete forms (3d printed) and for that I need to differentiate between compression and tension, because concrete has very different material properties in those two situations (it is not reinforced). Is there a way to apply different material properties to the different directions?

Kind regards

Hi Lars,

I haven´t checked if it worksl, but in Karamba3D 2.0.0 (Work In Progress) you can specify the tensile and compressive strength in ft and fc inputs, respectively, for the MatProps component.

Hi @Vigardo and @l.nijkamp,
you can find the details here in the manual for version 2.2.0 WIP.
