generative modeling for Rhino
I recently stumbled upon Geco and after downloaded it I placed the files in the component folder as asked, but when i ran grasshopper I get a loading error dialog box.
Does anyone know a solution to this?
to install Geco you just need to run the exe-file, you don't need to place anything in the components folder. The file you can find here maybe you need to sign in the group.
Hope this helps.
Hey thanks Martin!
I figured out my problem, I downloaded an older version of geco there for it wouldn't run but I got it working now!
Ok now that I have it running I wanted to take my file and see how my object reacts with sunlight and the possible shadows I can create, I was able to take an existing object and turn it into mesh, then the mesh I seen was transported to ecotect but I cant figure out how to real time move it in ecotect, also when i clicked the visual tab to see it in their nothing would appear other than a white screen.
Sorry for these questions I'm new to GH.
please take a look on our example files in the geco group.
Also to be aware about geco question please post them also at http://www.grasshopper3d.com/group/geco. It is much easier for us.
About your question.
you have to move your object in grasshopper and it will get updated in ecotect. For shadow-studies you can use our Shadow-component which creates the shadow inside rhino
sorry, I'm at the moment on a workshop in Madrid, so everything is very bussy.
On sunnday I will be back, but maybe up to there you will find some help in the geco-groupe that to] posted.
