algorithmic modeling for Rhino
I read gHowl has been connected to Processing and Arduino...my question is: can it be somehow connected to a C++ plug-in? I have written a plug-in that allows the user to input weather conditions and his position...could I then directly and dynamically read this information from the plug-in? Or should I export the info to an excel file and then read it from there?
I suppose this could technically happen, but I would need to know more in order to tell you if it is the most appropriate technique. Exporting the excel file would also work. To make it happen 'dynamically' your c++ app would need to send the data via UDP...which would be very useful if you are communicating to other devices. If you are just communicating to the same machine, this would also work. Depending on the amount of information you need to send, you might want to consider other techniques. If it is a lot of data, perhaps saving a file would be a better idea. By the way, you can find us on the gHowl group.
Thank you for your reply! i still need to categorise the data that needs to be sent back and forth....in order to be able to ask more concrete questions :) i will also look into the udp possibility.
