Khaled. Thanks for informing me of this message. Actually, I am not a Revit user so I still hope to find a plugin or self-scripted code inside Grasshopper.
I found an old PhD thesis that introduced several methods that integrating Grasshopper/Rhino, FEA engine, and optimization algorithm. This approach is under Matlab, Abaqus and Grasshopper. But I am not so familiar with Matlab and Abaqus, so I am still looking for some alternative methods to connect Ansys and Grasshopper… The paper link is here:
I roughly know the procedure of the communication but I think I still need to find original scripting for the communication purpose so that I can customize my idea. I noticed some people succeeded in linking Ansys and Grasshopper but the content seems to be gone already… such as this one:
So could you please share the old plugin that you find for connecting Rhino 5 with Ansys? I think I’ll try to figure out how to program scriptings for this purpose.
Besides, my concern is to find a method to optimize the geometry of cellular structure for thermal control and structural performance. I know honeybee can test the 2D shape with THERM, and karamba can deal with beam and shell problems, but both of them can not tackle the FEM issue in a small-scaled I think such as 5 cm^3 boxes. If you have some recomendation for softwares or plugins, please help to tell me as well.
