Parametric design provides an efficient way to design structures with repetitive or challenging shapes. Best examples of such applications are buildings in modern architecture style or bridge structures. Visual programming provides user friendly way how to model and update such structures. In this webinar we cover possibilities of connecting Grasshopper application with SCIA Engineer 19.


Watch our webinar and learn about:

  • Basics of parametric modelling techniques in SCIA Engineer.
  • Parametric models and templates stored directly in SCIA Engineer, brief introduction of OpenAPI.
  • What is Koala plugin for Grasshopper and how to get it up and running?
  • How to define basic and more advanced structures using Grasshopper and how to connect these models with SCIA Engineer.
  • And much more...
