I’m attempting to extend the structural analysis package (Structural analysis for Dynamo) which interacts with Robot Structural Analysis by adding references to e.g. trapezoidal loads, in order to do so I need to mimic the output from the build-in nodes. I’m currently testing with simple analytical nodes (see picture red right) and the original build in node from Autodesk (see picture red left).
The issue is that the output to the left is in the form of a connected “string” and my output is in the form of a list which will cause issues down the road when information is to be submitted to the analysis.calculate node.
I can through my Python script create the desired nodes, bars, loadcases and loads but I cannot return the correct information to back to Dynamo. Hope there are some genius out there willing to chip in.
