I’m have a problem with how I can optimize my diagonals in my truss element. The challenge I have is to construct the diagonals so that they can move independent of each other. I would like Galapagos to find the optimal number of diagonals and placement of these for a given load case.
How can I construct the geometry so that the diagonals can move freely? Does anyone have any good solutions or tips for how to solve this problem?

This example from Karamba is similar to what I want, but can’t see how they construct the geometry.
I’m new to Rhino and Grasshopper.
