snapshot from weaving workshop at chalmers

Thanks Emil Adiels for inviting me to co-organize this awesome weaving workshop together with yourself, Chris Williams, Alison Martin, Robin Oval, Isak Näslund, Sofia Malmsten and Daniel Jonsson. Happy to assist on the tech side plus I learnt a lot of new cool things about geometry and weaving. Who knew that stiff gridshells can be achieved with literally no mechanical fasteners? Also big congrats to … Continue reading snapshot from weaving workshop at chalmers

component reference document for Emu

Just created a reference document over all the components available in Emu. Hopefully useful to provide a more comprehensive overview of the plugin: https://github.com/EmilPoulsen/Emu.Resources/tree/master/reference On a side note – this reference document wasn’t created manually as you can probably guess. I’ve been working on a little hack to automatically pull contents out of .gha files. I may open source the tool some day soon, as … Continue reading component reference document for Emu

dynamically loading external assemblies

Recently, I’ve been interested in the architecture of CAD/BIM/FEA systems capable of dynamically loading external assemblies to allow for third-party plugin development. Found this great article by @RickStrahl explaining how this can be done with just a few lines of code: https://weblog.west-wind.com/posts/2016/Dec/12/Loading-NET-Assemblies-out-of-Seperate-Folders Recommended reading for anyone who’s interested in the mechanics of C# plugin development. The comments are of interest too, where another system called … Continue reading dynamically loading external assemblies

emu is now available on food4rhino!

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 … Continue reading emu is now available on food4rhino!
