Rhino/Grasshopper for Structural Engineering
Tutor: Junghwo Park
November 13-15, 2023

Hosted on Zoom by McNeel Europe
Even before using CAD software, structural engineers have been involved in mathematically calculating the parameters of the structure, such as material, weight, support conditions, and loads, according to the design codes and verifying the calculated results through experiments on physical models. Today, 3D modeling tools can be used to calculate, optimize, or aesthetically evolve the given structures to stand without failure off the ground and meet the designers’ intentions. In our next online workshop, Junghwo Park, BIM lead at Umdasch Group Ventures and certified BIM trainer by buildingSMART Austria, will teach a Rhino and Grasshopper online workshop aimed at structural engineers.
What you will learn: In this 3-day online workshop, you will get a basic understanding of how to use Rhino and Grasshopper in structural engineering. You will get to know useful Grasshopper plugins that aid the process during your daily practices. Furthermore, you will learn about seamless data interpolation between Rhino and structural engineering software such as SOFiSTiK, Tekla Structures, and Karamba3D, and lastly, data exchange workflows in BIM using Rhino.Inside.Revit, Speckle, and Autodesk Data Exchange apps.
