generative modeling for Rhino
I was just curious if anyone else was looking into creating objects in Grasshopper that could be viewed in a html webgl canvas...
if this could be done like the ghowl component, export to kmz, and it would be perfect.
You could have parametric models, and share them in a web viewer. (such as this one)
I have found one exporter, so it might be possible to create a grasshopper component
http://www.virtualshape.com/en/download that referenced this tool.
but I would like to know if anyone else was looking for a way to view rhino/grasshopper models in a web browser, and if there might be a way to do this already.
This website can do exactly what you want! It can directly show converted Rhino models (using a small tool they provided) in browser without any plugin.
Within Three.js there is an python export utility, With a little bit of adaption I am shure this can be converted to a three.js exporter. Let me know if you indent to do that, otherwise I will give it a go in about a month or so..
I thought about the same thing as working on my website at the moment. interesting links guys!
but of course it would be a different quality to have the ability to interact, have sliders and to able to show more process oriented sketchs like in processing.
so antoino i m very curious with what you want to come up with.. :-)
also it would be interesting to hear from the developer if something like this is intended for future releases..
Hi ben Fruehling,
i am studying an easier way to visualize and interact with generative shapes on the web:
Could not wait to see more of your development Antonio!
