Even before using CAD software, structural engineers have mathematically calculated the structure parameters, such as material, weight, support conditions, and loads, according to the design codes and verified the calculated results through experiments on physical models. Today, 3D modeling tools are used to calculate, optimize, or aesthetically evolve the given structures to stand without failure off the ground and meet the designers’ intentions. In our next online workshop, Junghwo Park, BIM lead at Umdasch Group Ventures and certified BIM trainer by buildingSMART Austria, will teach a Rhino and Grasshopper online workshop aimed at structural engineers.

What you will learn: In this 3-day online workshop, you will understand how to use Rhino and Grasshopper in structural engineering. You will get to know useful Grasshopper plugins that aid the process during your daily practices. Furthermore, you will learn about seamless data interpolation between Rhino and structural engineering software such as SOFiSTiK, Tekla Structures, and Karamba3D, and lastly, data exchange workflows in BIM using Rhino.Inside.Revit, Speckle, and Autodesk Data Exchange apps.

Day 1

There will also be general product presentations from SOFiSTiK, Tekla Structures (Rhino.Inside.Tekla by Sebastian Lindholm), and Karamba3D.

Course requirements: No specific requirements for the course. This course is for structural engineers without experience using Rhino and Grasshopper.

Max. number of participants: 25. If there is no quorum, the course will be canceled 15 days before.
