PolyFrame Beta from the Polyhedral Structures Lab

Announcing the first release of PolyFrame Beta 01.

PolyFrame is a geometry-based, structural form finding plugin for Rhinoceros. It is based on the principle of the equilibrium of polyhedral frames known as 3D graphic statics.

PolyFrame is a computational framework that allows the construction and manipulation of reciprocal polyhedrons for structural form finding. With this tool, a designer can simultaneously design and control the flow of forces in a structural form and drive the optimal structural solutions constrained to certain boundary conditions or specific geometric properties such as edge lengths and surface areas.

PolyFrame is based on a polyhedral construction and manipulation environment called PolyFramework.
