We invite you to join us for the next special training session at our European office in Barcelona. Clemens Preisinger, structural engineer at Bollinger Grohmann and plugin developer, will lead a three day Karamba3D Workshop February 27-March 1, 2019.

Clemens will introduce Karamba3D, a parametric structural engineering tool which provides accurate analysis of spatial trusses, frames, and shells. Karamba3D is fully embedded in the parametric design environment of Grasshopper, a plugin for the 3D modeling tool Rhinoceros. This makes it easy to combine parameterized geometric models, finite element calculations and optimization algorithms like Galapagos.

Day 1

  • Introduction
  • Presentation of recent building projects
  • Setup of a simple structural system
  • Results retrieval and display
  • Optimization of beam and truss cross sections
  • Geometry optimization based on Karamba results

Day 2

  • Structural basics
  • How to debug a structural model
  • Analysis of shells and plates
  • Results retrieval and display
  • Creating shell meshes and loads
  • Optimization of shell cross sections
  • Form finding

Day 3

  • Gridshells
  • Eigenforms and natural vibrations
  • Global buckling analysis
  • The Karamba Utilities
  • Using Karamba in C# scripts
  • Individual project development Karamba3D 1-year licenses for non-commercial use will be provided to the participants free of charge.
