For users of Rhino who share the vision of seamless integration between geometric design and physical simulation. Scan&Solve Pro for Rhinois a plugin that performs linear stress analysis on solid models constructed in or imported into Rhino. No meshing or conversions are required and no prior knowledge of analysis or finite elements is needed.
Scan&Solve Pro for Rhino requires a functional Windows installation of Rhino 4 or Rhino. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Rhino 5 are supported. Scan&Solve Pro for Rhinosoftware for engineering analysis from Intact Solutions is based on a patented meshfree technology that liberates Finite Element Analysis (FEA) from the dependence on and limitations of meshing. The salient feature of the technology is separate handling and controls of geometric and physical computational models that are seamlessly combined at solution run time. The advantages of this approach include unprecedented flexibility in handling geometric errors, small features, complex boundary conditions, and interfaces, while maintaining most of the benefits of classical FEA.
Ease of Operation Within Rhino
To use Scan&Solve Pro for Rhino, simply follow these steps:
Select the material (standard or custom)
Apply the restraints
Apply the new load types by selecting Body at the command line for body loads OR by selecting faces to load and specify torque
View the results (strength, weakness, deformations)
Click Report to generate web-ready reports
Click Bake to save the deformed shape
