generative modeling for Rhino
Important. You need recent Microsoft C++ runtimes in order to run this version of Grasshopper. You can download them here.
A new release is available for download from the usual location. This release mainly features a set of bug fixes. Not all reported bugs in 0.8.0065 and earlier have been fixed. OffsetCurveOnSurface and Brep internalisation is still buggy.
List of features and fixes:
I was thinking about plugging some components to a timer, but I didn't do anything about it (yet). Nice spin-off topic by the way, and yes, do make it a Wish discussion.
So that's vote #2. I bet there's somebody around here somewhere who can solve this.
slight hip *bump*
by "hip bump" I meant to just bump this request.
and by clarifying that, i'm bumping it again.
No dedicated wish list thread? Or is that what the release discussions are for?
one more minor wish; can you add please "save data" option for panel in addition to stream data and copy data. My case: i have several variants of model, switching by a slider. so I want to have several spreadsheets saving them from one panel, without risk to overwrite any of them...
is it normal that I do have still the "Menu shortcut bug" Problem?
I've downloaded and installed the latest release of rhino 5.0 and GH, but for some reason the new GH does not overwrite the existing version. I've uninstalled gh completely and reinstalled the current build but still no luck. It keeps reinstalling 0.80052.
run a windows search for grasshopper.dll and see how many come up. If you have more than one then note the locations and remove them manually.
I followed your instructions. Then I reinstalled GH. Now Rhino says that Grasshopper is an unknown command. I ensured that the plug-ins and the dll files were in the correct folder, any ideas?
P.S. GH actually works in Rhino 4 but not with the current rhino 5 beta...
Rhino5 needs to be told it has to load a specific plugin, the Grasshopper installer only informs Rhino4 at the moment. The simplest thing you can try is to drag and drop the GrasshopperPlugin.rhp file from the Rhino4 Plug-ins folder into the Rhino5 viewports. If it work, you're done, if it doesn't, then read on...
If loading Grasshopper does not work from the Rhino4 plug-ins folder, you need to copy the Grasshopper folder from Rhino4 into Rhino5. You probably did this before, and then when you installed a newer version only the original folder was updated, but not the copied files (your initial problem). Note that putting an rhp file into the Plug-ins folder is not sufficient to load it. You also need to tell Rhino specifically to load the plugin. You can do this by dragging the GrasshopperPlugin.rhp file into the Rhino5 viewports after you copy the entire Grasshopper folder from
ProgramFiles\Rhinoceros 5.0 WIP <bit-depth>\Plug-ins\
It's up and running now. Very good instructions...
Not sure if you have a place where you are collecting feature requests, but since this thread seems to be active, i'll post here (searching for feature and feature request didn't find anything conclusive)...
I would love to have a way with the keyboard to use right and left arrow to step through a slider (maybe with ctrl and shift to make bigger jumps)
it has been a long time since the last release.
i'm curious to see what's coming!
