Das neue Projekt Center vereint alle Funktionalitäten des Modell- und Benutzerkontenmanagements sowie den einfachen Zugriff auf personalisierte Informationen und Lernmaterialien.

Gewöhnlich zeigt traditionelle baustatische Software die Verformungen von Balken mit ihren Querschnitten auf der verformten Schwerachse. ConSteel 15 dagegen benutzt eine fortschrittliche Methode für Deformationsdarstellungen, die feiner und realistischer ist. Natürlich sind die numerischen Ergebnisse identisch, aber mit der verfeinerten Visualisierung kann das 3D-Verhalten der Balkenstruktur besser erkannt werden.

Introducing Pangolin, the new ConSteel integration with Grasshopper

In quick summary

What to know about Pangolin?

Pangolin is a Consteel plugin to integrate structural modelling and analysis into your parametric Grasshopper definitions. Using Pangolin you can create complex steel structural model definitions that include details such as beam haunches, highly configurable cold-formed sections with stiffeners, surface loads with load transfer surfaces distributing them onto beams, load combinations made up of loads in load cases, and so on. The created model then can be saved out as a file for later usage or sent directly over to Consteel by the connection component, for analysis with Consteel’s unique calculations.

How to work with Pangolin?

  1. Create your parametric model with Grasshopper
  2. Transform the geometry to structural elements, assign supports and loads with Pangolin
  3. Send to Consteel 14 and run the analysis

Basic workflow


1. Create your Grasshopper definition of the structure’s geometry

2. Define the complete structural model based on the geometry with Pangolin’s component

3. Preview the generated structural model real-time right in Rhino

4. Send the generated structural model to ConSteel

5. Analyse the model utilizing the full power of ConSteel’s unique analysis and design calculations

6. Change the Grasshopper model’s input parameters as needed, go to step 4. and check the parametric model again in a matter of seconds.
