Hi all,

Right now i’m doing my thesis which i have to analyze trusses using Grasshopper. i could define the truss using the software but i didn’t know how to define material, joints, shape of each element and loads. How can i do that?

I have to use another plug-in or all this things i can do it into Grasshopper?

Thanks guys,

Both are plugins. Posted the link to both. Karamba can be downloaded from food4rhino.com and Millipede can be downloaded from its developer website sawapan.eu

You know how to install plugins?
Drop them in the components folder if they have no install .exe and make sure that they are unblocked in their attributes.
