Workshop 5: Structural Performance
Benjamin Howes | On 22, Mar 2016
Digital Futures Workshop Series
Location: HHS 111
Date + Time: Sat, 2016.03.26, 12-3pm
Conductor: Benjamin Howes
This workshop will serve as an introduction to performance driven structural design using Karamba and Millipede, two structural analysis plugins for Grasshopper. The exercises will demonstrate how to properly model structural systems for accurate analysis, and how to use high level analysis feedback to drive the design process. The content will progress from simple beam analysis, on to single structural bay and long span roof truss examples, and will conclude with topology optimization experiments in Millipede.
