Using evolutionary solvers w Kiwi3d

Hi! I am trying to find the optimal position for columns to support a given surface using the Galapagos evolutionary solver and the output from Kiwi3d as the fitness criteria. The problem I am facing is that with each iteration, kiwi3d’s output changes to “no data was collected” momentarily, then followed by the numeric answer - which totally confuses galapagos and makes the process useless.

I tried a bunch of solutions such as creating a gate in python but it seems to be deeper than that.

Thanks for the help

using Galapagos usually works without problem. The only option that you have to uncheck is “No Freeze …” in the analysis solver component menu.
