I am looking for an extension to help me identify high stress points or flex points in a project I am working on anything like that for sketchup?


#4

The extension previously referenced is used to perform rudimentary structural evaluations. Apparently it is still undergoing improvement.

It seems to identify points of stress and flexure within several types of structures. Does this not meet your requirements?

this looks like what I am looking for to some degree thank you very much for the help. I build some utility trailers from time to time and need to know where my highest stress points are. I want be sure my material is sufficient to carry the load placed on it

This type of question is posted once in awhile but most of times the poster ignores the most crucial part of the problem: What are the material properties and the allowables. Some time ago there was a post of plugin attempting to make the tie between SU and FEA using the output of Su to FEM. Will see if I can find it but have not seen it recently
results of quick search for Su and FEA http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=24521. There are a number of other links in this link may be can help? http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=323&t=46405

There’s PartoCloud. It imports STL files.
