With the new Structural Analysis package for Dynamo software, you may optimize your existing structural workflows or invent some way of doing things. This lab will teach participants how to create structural model inside Robot Structural Analysis software using Dynamo software workflows, and how to set up the calculations model using dedicated nodes and run the computation. To complete the process, you will also learn how to interpret results to build optimized structural systems.
- Learn how to use Dynamo to create models in Robot Structural Analysis
- Discover the results-feedback loop
- Learn how to recognize possibilities and limitations of the Robot Structural Analysis package
- Gain beginning knowledge of how to extend the package using a simple Python script
