I’ve made a public release of the Grasshopper plugin I built for my master’s thesis. The tool is called Emu:
Emu is an interactive structural analysis and form-finding tool based on a 6DOF (6 degrees of freedom) formulation of the dynamic relaxation method allowing engineers and designers to run non-linear bi-axial bending and torsion simulations in the parametric environment of Grasshopper3d. It is aimed to be used in early design stages but yet giving real structural feedback.
It’s completely free and I may consider continuing to develop it in case people like it and find it useful. I’ve put download link, examples and more info here:
I’d love to hear if anyone has any thoughts, comments or feedback. There is no set road-map for the project at the moment, so the future is very open-ended!
