Project Fractal: Brute Force Your Engineering Calculations

Project Fractal has been around for a while now, and I have wanted to test it for what it is worth.
However, the examples I have seen are mostly pointed towards form finding and the architecture side of things, except of course MT Hojgaards excellent example with a parking garage, here:
In focusing only on formfinding and its like I feel we miss out on a lot of great potential uses for this piece of technology.

What I’ve been thinking of is how we could make a cross border link between the old way of doing things and the new technology that are evolving so rapidly. I want to bring one of those ideas to the table in hope that it can spur others into doing things like it and create more examples that are really useful. We may even help Autodesk in marketing this product, who knows..

Anyways, At our office we have a lot of “old” excel-sheets for doing calculations of random stuff. Yeah, I know.. It’s not BIM-ish, but it’s the real world. But…
