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.
Parametric tools such as Grasshopper and scripting of FE analysis packages have given engineers the opportunity to automate and optimise workflows.
Parametric design becomes more and more common in the construction industry. As more important it gets to be informed about available workflows and applications.
