Structural Engineering Software for Tensile Membrane Structures. The structural analysis software RFEM with add-on modules allows for form‑finding, structural analysis, and determination of cutting patterns of tensile membrane and cable structures. The calculation is performed according to the large deformation analysis. When determining the cutting patterns, user‑defined intersection lines and compensation dimensions are considered.
Grasshopper extension updated with new solver for cable nets. Rhinomembrane v 3.0 is a update of rel 3.0 for Rhino 6.0 64 bit. It has in built professional form-finding solvers for any category of tensile and cable net structures. The plugin is also fully compatible with our flagship product ixCube 4-10 so any model generated with RM can be baked on the fly to ixCube 4-10 for future structural analysis and patterning.
