Free Webinar: Sofistik Rhinoceros Interface
Date: Feb 28th at 2pm CET (duration 30 min).
In October 2011 Sofistik released a new major version 2012, which includes the SOFiSTiK Rhino-Interface.
This SOFinar will show you the basic features of this new product.
The SOFiSTiK Rhinoceros Interface extends the functionality of Rhino by the possibility to define and generate a finite element model for a structural analysis with SOFiSTiK. Geometric objects in Rhino like Points, Curves or Surfaces can be extended by structural information, like cross-section or material properties. The generation of the finite element mesh, consisting of beam and shell elements, can then be carried out from within the program.
A number of additional utilities, which will be combined in a SOFiSTiK toolbox, offer the possibility to visualize cross-sections (e.g. for renderings), to show structural properties as annotations or to select objects by specific attributes.
With the installation of the SOFiSTiK Rhinoceros Interface, Rhino will be integrated into the SOFiSTiK calculation environment (SOFiSTiK Structural Desktop), providing a seamless change between modeling, meshing and further calculation steps without having to manually convert data between different programs.
