This is what the winners of the “Bettering the people in the AEC industry” award look like in this weekend’s AEC Hackathon at BLOXHUB: Sara Almstedt, Felipe Bandeira, Øyvind Fossum, Puria Safari Hesari, Milovann Yanatchkov and yours truly. Our hack was FreiBot-O – an #AI based chatbot that encapsulates the collective intelligence of entire engineering organizations. She’s able to give you design recommendations, help you … Continue reading winners of the AEC Hackathon 2020 at BLOXHUB, CPH
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
Just rolled out Emu 1.1.0 with improved mesh visualization. Get it from here: https://emilpoulsen.com/emu In this version, there is a new component called “Results On Mesh Viz”, which allows you to visualize structural quantities on top of beam mesh extrusions as color gradients. Enjoy! Continue reading emu 1.1.0 release
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!
During the AEC Tech workshop today, me and Daniel Segraves from CORE studio talked about different approaches to structural optimization: form-finding, relaxation, genetic algorithms, cross-section optimization, pattern optimization and more! Continue reading snapshot from the AEC Tech workshop
