    In my previous post I showed you how to create a fully parametrized portal frame geometry in the Dynamo environment. After the Dynamo geometry is set, you can create the analytical model representation of this geometry in the Robot Structural Analysis Professional environment. The Structural Analysis for Dynamo package enables parametric modeling and structural analysis […]

    In this post I would like to show you how to create a fully parametrized portal frame geometry in the Dynamo environment. Recently, I added a few Dynamo nodes to the Structural Design package (version 1.1) to help you create such structural geometry. Generally portal frames are used for single-story buildings, but they can also […]
