Karamba hinged connection of meshes

(Rasmus Sainmaa) #1

I have a case where I would like to create a hinged connection between 2 meshes like in the picture below between the yellow and magenta areas.
Any advice on how this is done? And yes I’ve gone through the components and I’m not getting it.

Creating supports on the ‘hinge’ seems to create actual supports there not relaying any of the forces on the structures below.

Hi Rasmus,
take a look at the example ‘Shell_LinearHinge’. It comes with the installation of Karamba3D 1.3.1. You can find it by double-clicking on the Karamba3D desktop icon. This will open the Karamba3D installation folder. Then go to the folder ‘…Karamba\Examples\TestExamples\Zero_Length_Element’.
Best,
Clemens
