generative modeling for Rhino
Great advice. Any tutorial (video preferred) recommendations for scripping? thanks, B
In this case i'm in the same situation with BRC. There is not enough video tutorial based on RS if we compare it to processing or grasshopper. And yes, i would like to use that recommendations too.
The activity that really helped me with learning Rhinoscript was following the Rhino pluggin newsgroup as well as the main Rhino newsgroup. In particular if you use a newsreader you can go back into the archive and look for posts that Mitch Heynick or Pascal Golay have contributed to. Both were and as far as I can tell still are quite willing and able to assist with scripting questions. Mitch in particular is quite a prolific scripter. There are others on the group that I am failing to mention that also contribute their scripting knowledge, the point being that there is a great resource there. Also using the example scripts in the the Monkey editor can be very instructive. Many useful scripts can be generated from these by making simple modifications. Reading a good VB scripting book is also helpful and in the end a handy reference. There's a wrapper for V4 Rhinoscript in V5 so it isn't necessary to learn Python to script in V5. Hope this helps.
Apologies in advance to Mitch and Pascal if I've misrepresented them in any way.
I'm agreeing with Luis in full.
Also, if I'd be starting now and I had access to Rhino 5, I'd have a look at Rhino.Python. It's based on a scripting language that will run without changes on Rhino for Windows and Rhino for Mac. Python is also widespread in many industries.
