Depending on the structural analysis program and the development level of the particular plug-in, there are generally a number of different analysis options that can be used when setting up for analysis of a structural model.
Most programs do this slightly different so it is important to understand how each analysis program deals with this.
For each plug-in a solver component can be used to trigger the running of a structural analysis model and retrieve those results back into Grasshopper.
The main inputs required prior to running the solver are:
The load cases and combination to be solved.
