I’m trying to create a structural topology optimization. I’m using Topos to do this, but Topos optimizes with regards to the volume fraction and I need to optimize with regards to Von Mises. Therefore I want to change the volume fraction depending on the resulting Von Mises (topos gives von mises values).
This means that I need to create a loop in which a starting volume fraction is changed and dependent on the Von mises that the solver gives. I’ve tried to use Hoopsnake to do this, but I’m stuck on getting it to function.
I’m also trying to make the boolean that “starts” the simulation a boolean which is dependent on Von mises, as I want it to keep running iterations automatically until I have a structure with an acceptable Von mises value.
New to Grasshopper so any tips and suggested plug-ins are welcome!
