Querying Solution at Text Dots

A user asked for the ability to output solution values at the location of text dots.  I've added to the documentation a script that does that.  The script can be viewed at this…Continue

Michael Freytag replied to Marco Romagnoli's discussion 'Resolution'
"If the grid is connected, the physics of the simulation are connected as well. So to your questions: "For the software are considered as only one parts? No 2 ribs?" the answer is: Yes, no 2 ribs. ~Michael"

Michael Freytag replied to Paul Bury's discussion 'Partial model results'
"Hello Paul, I've never seen this before.  It has the appearance (but not exactly) of inadequate resolution in the Z-buffer of your graphics card.  Do you see different triangles popping into and out of existence as you change the…"

Michael Freytag replied to Jacek Godlewski's discussion 'Restraints: How to model a hinge support point?'
"Hello Jacek, That looks like it should work fine, there is still some resistance to rotation due to the Z-restraint on the bottom face, but the face is probably small enough it won't affect the behavior a lot. Here's an approach that…"

Michael Freytag replied to Jacek Godlewski's discussion 'Restraints: How to model a hinge support point?'
"Hello Jacek,   I'll work up an example for applying rotational restraints using a geometry similar to yours. As for getting the report to generate additional outputs, you have to modify the report template as described…"

"Nick, You should have an email message inviting you to upload it to a shared Google drive. ~Michael"

Michael Freytag replied to Nick's discussion 'Stalled'
"Hello Nick, If you'd like, email the 3dm file to support@intact-solutions.com and we'll try to diagnose the problem.  What version of Scan&Solve are you running? You can purge SnS data by exploding the solid and…"

Michael Freytag replied to Marco Romagnoli's discussion 'Load as a plane'
"If I understand correctly, you are interested in the stress state in the walls versus just the top.  For a simulation model, can you just ignore the top and apply the load to the walls directly?  Something like this: ~Michael"

Michael Freytag replied to Marco Romagnoli's discussion 'Load as a plane'
"Marco, Is there a particular physical situation that you are trying to simulate?  What output are you interested in?  Stresses, displacements? ~Michael"

Michael Freytag replied to Ian Boyd's discussion 'Export SNS solution as 3D PDF with SimLab plug in'
"Hello Ian, A spring is a good place to start.  It is relatively easy to model while simultaneously being non-trivial.  We'll have to limit it to compression springs with a gap between the coils.  In the case…"

Michael Freytag replied to Ian Boyd's discussion 'Export SNS solution as 3D PDF with SimLab plug in'
"Hello Ian, There are a few example scripts in the SnSScript examples forum:   http://www.scan-and-solve.com/forum/categories/snsscript-examples/listForCategory and also in the SnSScript documentation:  …"

Michael Freytag replied to Ian Boyd's discussion 'Export SNS solution as 3D PDF with SimLab plug in'
"Ian, Very cool geometry, and outputting to 3d pdf to boot! The arching of your reinforcing ribs has a close resemblance to the Michell truss-like structures that are seen so often in nature and as output from topology optimization algorithms. Now…"

Michael Freytag replied to Morgana Arbore's discussion 'linear edge restrains on a partial sphere?'
"Morgana, Here's a little trick that might approximate what you are looking for: Split the outer face (Rhino: Solid > Solid Edit Tools > Faces > Split Face) so there is a narrow band to which a Z-only restraint can be applied. In…"

Michael Freytag replied to Morgana Arbore's discussion 'linear edge restrains on a partial sphere?'
"Morgana, Can you show us a screenshot of your geometry and how you'd like to restrain it? Thanks, Michael"

Michael Freytag replied to Francesco calia's discussion 'Steel tank reinforcements'
"Hello Francesco- A thin structure like that is going to be hard to simulate accurately within the current version of Scan&Solve using the available resolution. You can get around that limitation to some extent by assuming the tank…"

Extracting Bending Moments

Recently a user asked about calculating section properties of a pre-cast concrete beam he was working on.  So I modified this RhinoScript to compute the bending moment on a section plane positioned to intersect the beam.  See the following video to see the script in use.The script works by intersecting the section plane…See More

Michael Freytag replied to Marco Romagnoli's discussion 'Cpu Load'
"Hello Marco, There are no settings in Scan&Solve to adjust the processor utilization.  The code is only parallelized in the computationally-intensive section where Scan&Solve reports "Building linear…"

Announcing Scan&Solve™ for Rhino: Stress Analysis Made Easy

Scan&Solve™ for Rhino is a new plugin from Intact Solutions that completely automates basic structural testing of Rhino solids. No simplification, healing, translating, or meshing is needed. Depending on complexity of your shape and chosen resolution, you may need to wait for a few minutes, but the results are worth the wait!


Simply pick the material, choose restraints and specify loads on the faces of the solid model:…
