Simple multispan frame structure


The script generates a multispan frame structure according to the parameters: height, span, bay, purlin division. It connects the purlins with the main beams with link elements. The structural members are categorized in structural groups. A surface load is also assigned to the structure.

The main purpose of the script is to provide and insight into advanced data structuring of the geometry prepared in Grasshopper.
