generative modeling for Rhino
how does one freeze a part of a file so that GH doesnt have to recompute all the steps every time u change a value?
say i have a really long and heavy definition, and the first part works, and all i want is to tweak a value at the end. what GH will do (i think) is recompute the whole solution every time you change any value.
this is really time consuming
what if u could "freeze" the beginning of the definition and only work on the end part?
another way to link two GH files, keeping all the fixed data on one file and only work on the other one.
does anybody have an idea?
If so then the Cache Geometry Component was made for this purpose. There are three states of this component. Bake, Through Put and Load. If the object only has an input then you can bake it to Rhino with the given name. If the component has both in and out then it behaves exactly like any other param. If it only has an output then you can load any objects in the Rhino document with that name. when in this mode you can switch all the other previous components to disabled.
Ok, maybe this is solution !
David it'is possible if bake geometrie with "cache Geometry", automatically disconnect the components connected to that one.
And if load geom, then disconnect next compoment.
thanks a lot for the quick answers.
I think that using the rhino as a cache is a really great idea - what would u do for numbers?
i still think you should be able to link different GH files like u can do in most programming languages.
but thanks again
