Difficulty: SimpleThis definition uses Galapagos to find the support positions for the minimum deflection of a rectangular grid of beams.Set the Grid to 2×3 to view in the TRIAL version. The FREE version does not include the cross section optimizer. Get the grasshopper definition here: 03_Optimization_SupportPositions.gh This example uses Karamba3D 1.3.3.
Difficulty: Simple (FREE/PRO version only)Here Galapagos is set up to play around with the position of the diagonals of a truss to achieve minimum deflection. Instead of using line geometry to generate the beams, here indices of the points are used to create the beams and supports.

Difficulty: Moderate (PRO Version only)A grid of beams is supported at five points. Columns from the base to the roof grid are stitched using Element Felting creating irregularity within the structure.The position of the support positions is optimized using Galapagos based on the deflection.
