Stress on the foundation

Does @karamba3d have examples of calculating and collecting loads of structural elements (walls, slabs, columns, beams, frames, etc.) on foundations?

I would like to calculate the load of such a metal frame on the foundation in the pre-project phase, but I don’t know where to start

Hi, you can analyze structures as either beams or shells in Karamba. To set up your definition, first define if it should be beams (ie, can have varying cross section sizes and can also be solid) or if it is a shell (ie, a plate with a thickness - 3d printed elements can also be analysed as shells).

Then you can follow the examples on our website or in the installed directory to set up your defintion - lines for beams, and meshes for shells.
