Line to Beam (karamba)

Component Index > Karamba > Model > Line to Beam (karamba)

Geometry is assumed to be given in [m]. Creates beams with default properties from given lines. Lines that meet at a common point are thus connected with each other. Karamba assumes input to be in meters.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
PointsPtsList of points which will be inserted at the beginning of the node-list at the output-plug. This makes it easy to reference them by index in the model later on.Point
LineLineStraight line which will be connected to others if they meet at common points. Node indexes may change if lines are added.Curve
NewNewIf false, a line only result in an element if it connects to points given in the 'Points' input-plug.Boolean
RemoveRemoveRemove duplicate lines - otherwise there could be two elements on the same spot which is normally not preferred.Boolean
Limit distance [m]LDistLimit distance [m] for coincident points. If negative, nodes of elements are tested for proximity (Number
Beam identifierBeamIdIdentifier of the beam. Need not be unique in a model.String
