Karamba3D is a parametric structural engineering tool which provides accurate analysis of spatial trusses, frames and shells.

Karamba3D is fully embedded in the parametric design environment of Grasshopper, a plug-in for the 3d modeling tool Rhinoceros. This makes it easy to combine parameterized geometric models, finite element calculations and optimization algorithms like Galapagos.

 

 

Karamba3D is a Finite Element program like many others. However it has advantages over these in several important respects: It is easy to use for non-experts, has been tailored to the needs of architects and engineers in the early design phase, works interactively and costs slightly less than the rest.

Optimization of Support Positions

Difficulty: Simple

Karamba 3D

This definition uses Galapagos to find the support positions for the minimum deflection of a rectangular grid of beams.

Set the Grid to 2×3 to view in the TRIAL version. The FREE version does not include the cross section optimizer.

System Requirements:

  • 8 GB RAM or more is recommended
  • At least 60mb disk space
  • Windows 10
  • Rhino7 | Rhino6 (SR25 or above)
  • Rhino5 32-/64-bit (will be phased out in the next release) with latest Grasshopper version installed (0.9.0076)

For Network Licenses: McNeel Zoo 6.x

 


Installation:

These are the prerequisites for installing Karamba3D:

  • Rhino 5.0, Rhino 6.0 or Rhino 7.0
  • Grasshopper (version 1.3.3 of Karamba3D was tested on GH 1.0.0007)

 

Download one of the installers and double-click on the msi-file. Make sure to choose the right bitness (32 or 64) of the installer when working with Rhino5. The 64-bit version of Rhino5 is entitled “Rhinoceros 5 (64-bit)”. Rhino6 and Rhino7 come as a 64-bit applications only.

The installation procedure lets you set the physical units used for calculation. By default Karamba3D assumes input to be in SI units (e.g. meters for point coordinates). You can switch to Imperial units either on installation or later on by editing the “karamba.ini” file. Coordinates will then be interpreted to be in “feet”, force in “kips”, material strength in “ksi” and so on.

Make sure to install the FULL version of Karamba3D if you wish to activate a PRO or EDU license at a later stage.

Karamba 3d install

Upon successful installation you should see a Karamba3D tab when you open Grasshopper in Rhino. Additionally, as a default setting a shortcut to the installation folder will be placed on your desktop.
