Connecting Members in Kiwi3D

(Guillaume Caussarieu) #1

Hello,
I was wondering how to modify the connection between two crossing members in Kiwi3D?

Probably the connecting point or coupling feature components would be of some use here but the documentation is quite light on these at the moment:

I would actually like to control which degree of freedom are shared between the member at the connecting point (Translation or rotation)

Thank you very much!

The coupling conditions can be controlled by the three input parameters HE HS HB of the beam component. They correspond to hinges (only coupling of displacements) at the end, start and in between. The same holds for H of the shell component.

Advanced options like scissor joint will be part of the next beta version.
