Simulate Early, Simulate Often... In Rhino
This video uses Scan&Solve to explore structural properties of a 3D printed STL model from Shapeways and compares the results to scientific experiments condu...
These experiments did not attempt a complete simulation of what happens. But all such simulations start with linear static analysis, which is valid under the usual assumed conditions.
Scan and Solve performing only a linear analysis, I find it a bit far-fetched to give any credit to the results on such a typically non-linear problem : plastic material, large deflexions, second order effects...
Looks like Shapeways posted the model for download http://www.shapeways.com/model/920443/squares.html
Now you can try it yourself.
