SMART Solutions Network* is a social media site for anyone engaged with the built environment and interested in the latest computational technologies to solve complex architectural, planning, engineering, and fabrication problems.
The following Rhino plug-ins are now available to download to everyone:
- SMART Form for Rhino (Beta) - Real time form finding and sculptural design tool in Rhino
Here at SMART Solutions we are continually developing our software and design processes with a focus on enabling fast conceptual design and rapid experimentation of design options.
Real time feedback is a key enabler towards true performative based architecture.
Built on the same dynamic relaxation principles of our advanced structural analysis software, SMART Form Beta is a compact, yet powerful and intuitive, real time plug-in, designed to work natively within your own CAD environment.
This beta version of SMART Form lets you sculpt and design free form, smooth geometry, based on the principles of pure compressive and tensile architecture. As a beta release, this plug-in is still in development. We are constantly updating our tools, adding new functionally and improving existing performance, so do keep checking back for our latest news and releases.
- SMART Move VIZ (Beta) - Crowd simulation and visualization in Rhino
SMART Move VIZ is based on our flagship crowd simulation software (SMART Move) that has been developed over a number of years, benefiting from our vast experience in simulation of crowd flow at venues covering urban, education, sports, rail and airports.
SMART Move VIZ is an architectural tool, intended for rapid space planning and visualisation of moving crowd in 3D. It is not intended for detailed circulation analysis or behaviour modelling. With an intuitive interface and real time capability, SMART Move Viz is ideal for quick design optioneering and visualisations.
