Difference or link between kiwi3D & Karamba 3D

someone recommend me to use karamba 3D and kiwi3D for structural analysis of gridshell.
I have designed the form on kangaroo then work on karamba but kiwi3d I am lost.

Hey, if you want, you can post your structure or send a pm and I will try to help you with Kiwi. There are also some basic examples in the download folder and some tutorials on youtube.

Hi anna,
thankyou for your kind response.
I don’t have to use kiwi 3D (after discuss it with my professor).
But also I am having a problem.
i baked my form (pavilion) and change my little bit on supports. but now I am stuck to assign that baked form to continue the analysis on karamba.

can you help me in this regard? (see attached)

in short I want analysis of my baked part.

I don’t have Karamba, so I don’t know. But if it is just about getting the geometry back into Grasshopper, I assume that you can use a mesh parameter component and import it by right-clicking on it and choosing ‘set mesh’?
