Hi there !
Here I have a project for a tree that must be able to support its own weight.
At the morphological level it looks like this:
But on Karamba instead of having continuous branches from start to finish, I have to, since the beams are created from lines and not from curves, split them. So my shape is not right, because they are on Karamba assemblies of beams and not continuous branches from the ground to the top as in the morphological research. This gives completely wrong calculations.
In addition, I normally have connecting pieces between the different branches like this:
But I don’t know how to interpret them in the calculation on Karamba, because if I create supports it gives me pieces that are much too rigid. I cannot directly import circular elements that would surround the branches. I thought maybe to create concentric forces around these places but I don’t know how to model them on Grasshopper …
Any ideas for a solution?
