How to connect grasshopper to MIDAS?

I’m doing structural analysis with Midas iGen, and currently I just import dxf (based on gh) is to Midas and then manually add sections, loads, etc. As the model constantly changes, it’s hard to update the changes in Midas other than import the dxf again. So has anyone tried to write scripts so that sections, materials, loads etc can also be applied in gh then import to Midas?
Didn’t find much info now, and trying to write my own one. Any suggestions or hints will be grateful!


I wrote a Python script in Grasshopper which creates Midas mct files, it worked well for me.

Hi karakus can you share your Phyton script? Thanks a lot

I am currently developing a plugin to link grasshopper and Midas. It is still work in progress but I hope I’ll be able to share it soon.
You may check in the following video a bridge and also some other structures where I implemented the plugin.

Hi Drilon,
I would be interested in the plugin if it is available yet?
Seems like it would be of interest to a lot of the bridge community.
