Venue: atelier mitte 7, Stuckgasse 9, Vienna 1070
July 3-5, 2019
Led by plug-in developer and structural engineer Clemens Preisinger, along with Zeynep Aksoz and Matthew Tam from the expert Karamba3D team, this three-day workshop will focus on methods of setting up structural systems in the parametric environment of Grasshopper. Participants will be guided through the basics of analyzing and interpreting structural models, to optimization processes and how to integrate Karamba3D into C# scripts.
This workshop is aimed towards beginner to intermediate users of Karamba3D, but advanced users are also encouraged to apply. It is open to both professional and academic users.
Karamba3D is 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. This makes it easy to combine parameterized geometric models, finite element calculations and optimization algorithms like Galapagos.
- Introduction and presentation of project examples
- Optimization of cross sections of line based and surface-based elements
- Geometric optimization
- Topological optimization
- Structural performance informed form finding
- Understanding analysis algorithms embedded in Karamba3D and visualizing results
- Complex workflow processes in Rhino, Grasshopper, and Karamba3D
Fees: Earlybird fee until May 10 -> for professionals EUR 750 (+VAT), students EUR 375 (+VAT)/professionals EUR 825 (+VAT), students EUR 415 (+VAT)
Number of participants: Places are limited to a maximum of 10 participants with limited educational places. A minimum of four places is required for the workshop to take place. The workshop will be canceled if this quota not be filled by May 31.
Course language: The workshop will be taught in English.
Course requirements: Basic Rhino and Grasshopper knowledge is recommended. No knowledge of Karamba3D is needed. Participants should bring their own laptops with either Rhino 5/Rhino 6 and Grasshopper installed. A 90-day trial version of Rhino can be downloaded from Rhino. Karamba3D ½ year licenses for non-commercial use will be provided to all participants.
