Simulate Early, Simulate Often... In Rhino
I would like to know if scan and solve would do a resonable job simulating wood materials if the mechanical properties are known.
I obtained the properties for and average sample of Douglas fir and the max deflection for a 2x6x96 with 100lb force in z and both ends constrained seemed to be way off at 14 inches.
I am a novice to FEA and used the von mises failure model.
If scan and solve can simulate wood materials, what would be the best settings in the custom material settings to obtain a reasonable result?
I suspected this would be a currently limitation after reading the online documentation
Thank you for the prompt reply.
I look forward to future additions
You've got a great product here.
Can you suggest any recommended reading for newcomers to FEA?
Something digestable by the layman?
