POSTPONED: Karamba3D Workshop by Clemens Preisinger, March 25-27 at McNeel Europe in Barcelona






March 25- 27, 2020
10:00 AM–6 PM
McNeel Europe S.L.
Roger de Flor, 32-34 bajos
08018 Barcelona (Spain)


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.

Course Outline

Day 1
  • Introduction
  • Presentation of recent building projects
  • Definition of a basic structural system
