Newsletter February 2021: SOFiSTiK now supports Rhino 7: Even better functionalities for fully parametric analysis

Dear SOFiSTiK users, dear interested parties

In this newsletter, we have exciting news to share with you!

With the latest Servicepcak 2020-8, SOFiSTiK now fully supports the new Version 7 of  McNeel Rhinoceros. According to the manufacturer McNeel, Rhino 7 is regarded as the most significant upgrade in their history. From the possibility to create arbitrarily organic shapes using subdivision surfaces, through the new quad remesher and the ability to model directly in Autodesk Revit using the new Rhino.Inside Toolkit, Rhino 7 provides a large number of new features which can now also be used in conjunction with SOFiSTiK. SOFiSTiK supports Rhino 7 for the direct interface in Rhino as well as within the Grasshopper-Toolbox, used for the generation of fully parametric analysis models.

Further information on Rhino 7 can be found on the official Rhino website 

For more information on the SOFiSTiK Rhino/Grasshopper interfaces, its advantages and functionalities, visit our SOFiSTiK Rhino / Grasshopper webpage.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Your SOFiSTiK Team


Upcoming Webinars


Webinar: Analysis of Cable Stayed Bridges

Cable stayed bridges are beautiful and awe-inspiring structures

With their elegant form, simple force transfer mechanism and high level of statical indeterminacy, cable stayed bridges are every structural engineer’s dream. They are versatile for their span range and are increasingly being used for medium to very long spans on rivers, in urban and non-urban settings.

In this webinar, we plan to introduce you to the analysis of cable stayed bridges.

You will learn about the determination of cable and initial jacking forces at the time of installation to obtain the desired geometry. You will also learn about the calculation of member forces at the stage of traffic opening. We will be using SOFiSTiK for the analysis and will show how it can greatly help in this optimisation process.
