i3DGS is an interactive platform for the methods of 3D/Polyhedral Graphic Statics. This platform is designed to educate the principles of equilibrium using reciprocal polyhedral diagrams by providing a variety of different examples. The objective of this platform is to encourage students, researchers and practitioners to use the geometry-based methods of equilibrium in design and engineering problems. The methods of 3D/Polyhedral Graphic statics are developed based on the “principle of the equilibrium of polyhedral frames.”
