This toolbox contains a plentyfull of functions to:
- Create FEM-Design objects (bars, shells, covers, loads, supports, reinforcement etc.),
- Append objects to FEM-Design models,
- Run analysis,
- Run design calculations (RC-design, Steel-design, Timber-design),
- Export results,
- Export documentation
Place the Grasshopper assembly file (FemDesign.Grasshopper.gha) and dynamic-link library file (FemDesign.Core.dll) in your Grasshopper components folder (...\Rhino 6\Plug-ins\Grasshopper\Components\). Make sure that you unblock the the file by right-clicking on it going to Properties>General>Unblock. If the file is not unblocked an error message will be prompted in Rhino when loading Grasshopper.
