Online Karamba3D Workshop by Clemens Preisinger, June 22-24 (McNeel Europe in Barcelona)






June 22-24, 2020
10 AM-1 PM/ 2-6 PM
Online course hosted by McNeel Europe S.L. (Barcelona)


Clemens Preisinger, structural engineer at Bollinger Grohmann and plug-in developer of Karamba3D,  will teach Karamaba3D from scratch. Karamba3D is a parametric structural engineering tool that provides accurate analysis of spatial trusses, frames, and shells. It is fully embedded in the parametric design environment of Grasshopper, a plug-in for the 3D modeling tool Rhinoceros. This makes it easy to combine parameterized geometric models, finite element calculations, and optimization algorithms like Galapagos. The online course will be hosted on the ZOOM platform.

Course Outline

Day 1
  • Introduction
  • Presentation of recent building projects
