Finding the optimal hanger layout for network arch bridges can be a challenge. This experiment shows how simple it is to use tools such as Visual Studio and Grasshopper to optimise our design.
Learn how to create a regular cable net on a free form membrane surface in SOFiSTiK.
When starting a new project in SOFiSTiK FEA, the first thing is to get the project properties right. Learn more about the System Information Dialog Box in version 2022.
Get introduced to the workflow of force optimisation with non-linear effects such as cable sagging.
When it comes to post-tensioned structures, it becomes necessary to optimise the number of cables, forces and stresses in the cables as well as the geometry.
Learn how to model a Truss System with Grasshopper and analyse it with SOFiSTiK in this free online course.
SOFiSTiK offers a McNeel Rhinoceros Interface to utilise Rhino object for finite element analysis and design. This interface was extended with Grasshopper components to build highly parametric structures and to analyse them.
Unleash the full range of features in SOFiSTiK and learn about the text editor Teddy. This reference collection helps you to get started with the most powerful interface of SOFiTiK, the text interface.
The SOFiSTiK Bridge + Infrastructure Modeler for Revit supports you in building bridge models with a few clicks. In this post, you can find a collection of links to get you started with the Revit plugin.
