SnS, Analyze in Rhino - New Version

A new build of Scan&Solve™ for Rhino is now available. Download it here.

New features in the latest build include:
  • User selection of color scheme
  • Adjustable legend ranges
  • Querying the solution at user specified points
  • Saving ("Bake") the deformed shape
In addition to minor bug fixes, the interface has been expanded to support user-requested visualization capabilities. The legend display has been moved to the document window for improved readability and better use of precious screen real estate. The View tab provides tools to mark the solution values at the minimum, maximum, and at user specified points. Deflection scale and legend ranges may be adjusted interactively with the mouse or by keyboard input. The new release also improves accuracy of computations in the vicinity of restrained faces.

In Rhino, simply:
  • Select the material, standard or Custom
  • Apply the restraints, Edit to partially restrain
  • Apply the loads
  • Click Go
  • View the results (strength, weakness, stresses, deformations)
  • Click Report to generate web-ready reports
  • Click Bake to save the deformed shape
For more information or to participate in the free beta-testing of this plug-in, please join the Scan-and-Solve for Rhino network.
