Tekla Webinar:  Discover Algorithmic Modelling for Tekla Structures Using Rhino/Grasshopper

Watch the recorded version of this webinar here:  https://www.tekla.com/about/webinars/video/discover-algorithmic-modelling-tekla-structures-using-rhinograsshopper

Students are you working with complex models and shapes and need more flexibility that only mathematical functions used in Rhino/Grasshopper can offer.   Join this webinar to learn more about algorithmic modelling and parametric structural design in Tekla Structures using Rhino/Grasshopper.  Grasshopper provides a graphical approach to working with Rhino and one of the main benefits is that you don't need to have a high level of scripting or programming experience.  

Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor. It is tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3D modeling tools but requires low knowledge of programming or scripting, and is developed by Robert McNeel & Associates.

The new Grasshopper-Tekla Structures live link is a set of Grasshopper components that can create and interact with objects live in Tekla Structures. The link enables structural engineers who create free-form roofs and facades to efficiently support the architectural vision in early conceptual design phase. Other practical applications of the link include:

  • Creation of building stick frames to drive analysis and Building Information Models
  • Model beams and slabs with unusual curvature
  • Generation of detailed steel sections parametrically

In addition, you will learn how the link can be used to create complex geometry for bridges and other structures.
