I would like to ask for some help with my model. I’ve been working with gridshells in rhino/grasshopper and finally got the desired model. However I would like to do the structural analysis in Autodesk Robot.
The problem is:
-Exporting the model as a DWG file using just the centerlines, and then assigning cross section in Robot is an option; however, the bars don’t follow the inherent surface. After some discussion in Robot forum we concluded that is not the best option, because I’ll not have accurate results.
-I can’t find a way to export my model from rhino to robot without affecting the bars position.
I’ve attached some pictures to help you guys understanding which is the problem.
I hope my question was clear.
Thank you in advance,
