Optimization using galapagos

Hello people,

I want to use galapagos to do some optimization. One of the parameters to optimize is the thickness of a concrete deck. The thickness is given in mm. the minimum amount is set to 10 mm and the maximum is set to 50 mm. It doesnt make sense to optimize every value in that range since it is almost impossible to pour concrete with mm accuracy. therefore i want galapagos to only look at 10, 15, 20 etc.mm. How do i program this?

many thanks,


If you right click a slider you can change the type to integers, and Galapagos will only choose whole numbers. Then you multiply the slider output by the required amount.
So in your example you’d set the integer range from 2 to 10 and multiply by 5 to get your values from 10 to 50


That was so simple that i hadnt even thought about it :P. I was looking at galapagos settings etc. Got to love simple solutions though! thanks for taking your time and helping me out :slight_smile:
