Introduction to Structural Analysis

The Geometry Gym structural analysis plug-ins for Rhino and Grasshopper provide an efficient way of modelling, setting load and load combination data performing remote analysis operations, reading results and automating the overall design process of structures.

We currently have downloadable plug-ins for all the following structural analysis programs listed below.

Geometry Gym can also provide development services to provide Rhino and Grasshopper plug-ins for linking in-house analysis software packages with Rhino and Grasshopper.

Current Features

You can view the features available for all of our current packages here or better yet download them and give them a try.

We develop plug-in features on an demand and feedback basis. If there is something that can be done in the structural program you are using and you think it can be automated to better help your workflow we would like to hear about it so we can continually improve the product.

Data Validity

It is the responsibility of the designer to ensure that all structural analysis data is transferred correctly and that results are coming out as expected. We generally recommend to set-up a number of small models that allow easy validation through a traditional calculation method to ensure data validity.

We provide a number of simple examples under each structural program page which should help.
