Kicking off 2019 with a little announcement: I’ve made a public release of the Grasshopper plugin I built for my master’s thesis. The tool is called Emu:
Emu is an interactive structural analysis and form-finding tool based on a 6DOF (6 degrees of freedom) formulation of the dynamic relaxation method allowing engineers and designers to run non-linear bi-axial bending and torsion simulations in the parametric environment of Grasshopper3d. It is aimed to be used in early design stages but yet giving real structural feedback.
It’s totally free and I may consider continuing to develop it if people like it and find it useful. Find download link, examples and more info here:
Happy new year and all the best for 2019!
