I am searching for a flexible approach to optimize my structure.
I want to create and parametrize a complex geometry in Grasshopper (double curved honeycomb structure) and I have to perform an optimization (let’s say wall thickness as free variable) according to the results of a FEM solver. The idea is to use Code Aster as FEM Solver (open source software) and write a script for the optimization in python. Is it possible to communicate between Grasshopper and Code Aster (or FEM software in general) in an iterative way? Maybe through Geometry Gym?
I don’t have any experience with Grasshopper yet, just commercial CAD and FEM softwares. I need to design curved sandwich panels and optimize them according to the load cases.
Any suggestions are very helpful!
