ABxM.PlateStructures is an add-on to ABxM.Core for agent-based design and development of plate structures, such as segmented timber shells. The add-on contains various agent system constructs and utilities for plate structure design and is intended to be used within Rhino/Grasshopper. This version contains the tools for designing plate structures such as the Landesgartenschau Exhibition Hall (2014) and the BUGA Wood Pavilion (2019). The package includes examples files that demonstrate how a model of an agent-based plate structure could be built.
