Karamba3D Workshop by Clemens Preisinger at McNeel Europe in Barcelona

Karamba3D Workshop by Clemens Preisinger

February 27–March 1, 2019
10:00 AM–6 PM
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 3-day Karamba3D Workshop February 27–March 1, 2019. 

Clemens will introduce Karamba3D, a parametric structural engineering tool that provides accurate analysis of spatial trusses, frames, and shells. Karamba3D 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
Karamba3D 1-year licenses for noncommercial use will be provided to the participants for free.

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 your payment has cleared.

Max. Number of Participants: 10. If there is no quorum, the course will be canceled 15 days before.

Language: English
