## What is a parametric truss?

Parametric Truss is a web application enabling quick structural analysis of a custom truss element. The geometry, load and cross sections of the components can be easily modified using sliders. Users can preview analysis result mesh produced by Karamba3d plug-in for Grasshopper.

**How does a space frame work?**

A Space Frame structure can be defined as a rigid, lightweight, truss-like structure. It is constructed from interlocking struts in a geometric pattern. The Space frames can be used efficiently to cover huge areas with minimum interior supports.

**What is the difference between space truss and space frame?**

1. Different nature: Space truss is a structure made of rods connected with each other by hinges at both ends. Space frame structure is a space structure made of multiple rods connected by nodes according to a certain grid form.

### Is LunchBox for Grasshopper free?

Machine Learning for Grasshopper LunchBox includes LunchBoxML – a generalized Machine Learning toolkit for implementing models including regression, neural networks, probabilistic classifiers, and clustering. LunchBoxML is free and open source!

**What is Galapagos Grasshopper?**

WHAT IS GALAPAGOS? Galapagos is a component inside of grasshopper that can optimize a shape so that it best achieves a user defined goal. For this to work, Galapagos needs a series of options or genes to try out, and a defined goal or fitness value.

**What is parametric design approach?**

Parametric design is a design method where features (such as building elements and engineering components) are shaped according to algorithmic processes, in contrast to being designed directly. In this method, parameters and rules determine the relationship between design intent and design response.

**What is parametric structural design?**

Parametric design is a framework that allows a design to vary along different quantitative parameters, called design variables. Ideally, these design variables capture the extent of all possible solutions, also known as the design space.
