Creating a Json file for a section in Grasshopper

Hello,

I would like to parametrize a concrete column in Grasshopper. In a tutorial i found the HEA profile (see picture attached). However, there are no Json files for concrete columns. Is there any way to create this?

Thanks in advance

Hi, did you work out how to do this? I’m stuck on the same thing, for a rectangular timber beam

Hello,
I would recommend that you use our online help for creating a json file.
https://www.sofistik.de/documentation/2020/en/rhino_interface/search.html?q=json&check_keywords=yes&area=default
First you can create a json file (write) with an already existing timber cross section and afterwards review the json file (read) to see which informations can be saved in the json file like perimeter.

Hi, how can we create the json file with an already existing cross section? What is this exact input?

If you could help us with that it helps a lot!

Hello,
Here you can have a look at a small example with an IPE 300 from the library.
You only have to define your own recangular cross section instead of the ipe 300.

Hi, how would I go about knowing what the syntax is for a JSON file representing a circular cross section is? I want to create a circular cross section with varying radius? Is there an easy way to find out? Many thanks,
