HoaryFox handles the Japanese structural BIM format ST-Bridge files. It supports model visualization and input/output of ST-Bridge files to Karamba3D .
You can easily check structure frames and present them!!
If you need stand-alone ST-Bridge file viewer, Please see STEVIA

Install

  1. In Grasshopper, choose File > Special Folders > Components folder. Save the HoaryFox directory there. 
  2. If you want to use Karamba3D convert, it is recommended to save the file in the same directory as Karamba.gha
  3. Right-click the file > Properties > make sure there is no "blocked" text
  4. Restart Rhino and Grasshopper 

How to use

  • Input st-bridge file path, output some its tag data(StbColumn, StbGirder, StbPost, StbBeam, StbBrace, StbSlab, etc).
  • Support for ST-bridge above ver2.0 

Please refer to Samples directory files.

Karamba3D Integration

Conversion of data into Karamba3D supports only beam elements. Mesh elements such as floor and wall are not supported.
L-type and C-type cross-sections are replaced by rectangular cross-sections with equivalent axial cross-sections because Karamba3D does not support them.
Output is STB2.0.3 format.

What is ST-Bridge

Quote from building SMART Japan Structural Design Subcommittee doing making specifications of ST-Bridge.

ST Bridge is the standardized format for data sharing in Japan’s structural engineering industry.

  • Simpler to use than IFC due to the clearly defined the range of use
  • Integrate Japanese original methods of drawing methodology (Grids, part placement and section annotations, reinforcement information)
  • Aim for coordination between domestic structural applications, building skeleton surveying applications, 3D Object CAD
