Hi Kyle,

It looks like the link to the CC 2015 version is not active anymore.  Is this still available for download somewhere?  I would love to give it a try!

Hi Kyle - Illustrator 2017 is not supported. I can only build the plug-in against the copy of illustrator I currently have - and I do not have 2017. The plug-in is open source should anyone wish to attempt to build it on their own system against their own version of illustrator.

Anyone having trouble with Doodlebug and Illustrator 2017? (getting a COM error)

Comment by Andrew Schiffer on March 9, 2017 at 10:14am

Hi Andrew-

Thanks for putting this plugin together- I'm super excited about the potential. This is the error message I see with the open illustrator component:  1. Solution exception:Could not load file or assembly 'IllustratorInterop, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

I'm wondering if this is related to the COM library issue that many others have been experiencing? I'm running the latest version of CC (2017) and the latest version of Rhino, but not WIP. Will this plugin essentially have to be rewritten every-time illustrator is updated? I look forward to using it. Thanks for you help!

Works perfect! Thanks 

Comment by Andrew Heumann on February 6, 2017 at 1:44pm

Zack - it should go in the same place as the Grasshopper GHA. C:\users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Grasshopper\Libraries

I am wondering if anyone can direct me where to install the .dll file? I've tried in the windows system folder and the program folders for illustrator but am having no luck in establishing the connection.

Hi Andrew,

Wanted to try out your plugin, but there seems to be something wrong with the dropbox or is it just me? I can't log in (the fields are auto-filled in as always, but nothing happens when I press log in) and your download page is blank like nothing is on it and the download doesn't start. I'm not using dropbox that much, not sure if they changed their policy or is it a bug?

Could you check it? Let me know, please.

Dear Andrew,

First of all, thank you for your great plug in. 

What is the ideal workflow? Should i open rhino first then Illustrator manually or should grasshoper open the illustrator itself?

In both ways it gives me an error "1. Solution exception:Unable to cast COM object of type 'System.__ComObject' to interface type 'Illustrator.Application'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{95CD20AA-AD72-11D3-B086-0010A4F5C335}' failed due to the following error: No such interface supported (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004002 (E_NOINTERFACE))"

Thank you very much~

Hello Andrew,

I got the same issue to open illustrator with Doodlebug. I use windows 10 with CC 2015.3.1.
Did anyone figured out a way to make it work on windows 10?

thanks,

seems like a cool plugin
