Karamba3D Training Workshop - McNeel Europe (Barcelona)

Karamba3D Training Workshop by Clemens Preisinger
February 7-9, 2018
McNeel Europe S.L.
Roger de Flor, 32-34 bajos
08018 Barcelona (Spain)

Join us for the next Special Training Session at our European office in Barcelona. Clemens Preisinger, structural engineer at Bollinger Grohmann and plugin developer, will lead a three-day Karamba3D Workshop February 7-9, 2018. 

Clemens will introduce Karamba, a parametric structural engineering tool which provides an accurate analysis of spatial trusses, frames, and shells. Karamba is fully embedded in the parametric design environment of Grasshopper, a plugin for the 3D modeling tool Rhinoceros. This makes it easy to combine parameterized geometric models, finite element calculations, and optimization algorithms like Galapagos.

Day 1

  • Introduction
  • Presentation of recent building projects
  • Setup of  a simple structural system
  • Results retrieval and display 
  • Optimization of beam and truss cross sections
  • Geometry optimization based on Karamba results

Day 2

  • Structural basics
  • How to debug a structural model
  • Analysis of shells and plates
  • Results retrieval and display
  • Creating shell-meshes and loads
  • Optimization of shell cross sections
  • Form finding

Day 3

  • Gridshells
  • Eigenforms and natural vibrations
  • Global buckling analysis
  • The Karamba Utilities
  • Using Karamba in C# scripts
  • Individual project development

Karamba 1-year licenses for noncommercial use will be provided to the participants free of charge.

Course Fee: EUR 795 (+VAT); full-time students and university teachers will get a 50% discount (proof of status required). Please note your seat is only confirmed once payment has been cleared.
