3.8.16: User Iso-Lines and Stream-Lines

Fig. User defined Iso-lines (red) and stream-lines (green) on a rectangular shell patch

The definition “User_Iso_Lines.gh” can be found in the Karamba3D installation folder under “..- Examples/TestExamples/”. Double-click on the Karamba3D desktop icon to get there.

Both components “User Iso-Lines” and “User Stream Lines” work similar to the “IsoLines”- (see section 3.6.12) and “Principal Stress Lines on Shells”-components (see section 3.6.12) respectively. The only difference lies in the fact that for each node of the model (which includes also nodes that only connect to beams) a value (input-plug “Vals”) or vector (input-plug “TVecs”) tangent to the flow needs to be supplied.
