Hi All,

I have just released an update to the add-on on Food4Rhino. Some bugs were fixed.

  • Added "Activate all bake components" button
  • Description component migrated to "AutoGraph" and will only be available in Elefront as legacy
  • When you create a cycle in description components, GH wil no longer crash
  • Materials are now assigned to layers and objects properly
  • A known bug with valuelist components and layer components is fixed 
  • A bug in the "Duplicate Data Match" component is fixed
  • A bug in the "Graft Parallel" component is fixed

Hi Ramon, Thanks again for the add-on.  I've been using the export objects component especially, which I've had the best success exporting multiple geometries to a single file and including textures.  One issue I've come across is that with the extension set to .obj, the rhino command line still spits out "Choose meshing option ( DetailedOptions  PolygonDensity=50 ):" which requires a manual selection.  Issuing a -_Export manually first and re-running the script has no change.  I'm curious what syntax is required to force the export scheme of the component? Have not tested with other filetypes.

I have prepared a working sample file that demonstrates some of the functionalities. It is really just a drop on a hot plate, but it should give an idea of the different scenarios the tool can be used for.

A new updated version with FULL functionality has been released today. There are quite a few exciting new features, as well as some beloved old ones, such as block creation and instantiation.

Feel free to check it out on Food4Rhino
