Participant will be able to understand and use Grasshopper – Tekla live link for automation of Tekla Structures modeling tasks.
The Grasshopper-Tekla live link enables algorithmic modelling for Tekla Structures using Rhino/Grasshopper. The link is a set of Grasshopper components that can create and interact with objects live in Tekla Structures.
Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor for designers who are exploring new shapes using generative algorithms. It is integrated with Rhino’s 3D modeling tools but requires low knowledge of programming or scripting and is developed by Robert McNeel & Associates.
