New in Karamba3D 2.2.0
These are the new features of Karamba3D 2.2.0
- Additional types of loads for beam- and truss-elements (see section 3.2.2). The "Imperfection"- and "Line-Load"-option of the "Loads"-component were moved to the "Beam Loads"-component. The latter are now available as the more flexible "Block"-loads.
- Specification of color ranges via context-menu for the "ModelView"-, "BeamView"- and "ShellView"-components.
- Rendering beams and shells with cross sections results in watertight meshes with normal vectors pointing outward.
- "Optimize Cross Section"-component (see section 3.6.8)
- Cross section design according to Eurocode3: 'SwayFrame'-option added for more economic design of structures where buckling involves no sideways sway.
- Input 'MaxDisp' can be supplied with a vector for specifying the length and direction component for limiting displacements.
- "ModelView"-component: Input-plug 'DispDir' lets one specify a direction for selecting displacement-components to be displayed. When supplying a plane, displacements get projected onto it. See section 3.7.1.
- Load-cases identifiers: Names can be used instead of numbers.
- In all result-components where formerly only element-identifiers could be input to specify elements for which to get results, the elements themselves can now be used.
- Scripting: It is now possible to attach user-data to all Karamba3D objects. See the example 'Karamba\Examples\TestExamples\Scripts\UserData.gh' in the Karamba3D installation folder.
- Point-masses: The point-masses no longer enter the total mass as output by the "Assemble"-component. In this way it is easier to assess the mass of the structure.
