Beam Analyses comparing two structures

We approach the problem comparing two different beam structures for the same 3D shape. Both structures have the same support points, loads and are made from the same size beams. After comparing the results form the two grids the conclusion is that moments and forces in grid 1 are smaller than grid 2 mainly because they (the forces) are shared between more elements. In conclusion Grid one will be the better static choice, however it will use more material ending with overall  higher building expenses.
