algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Latest Activity: Nov 15
Eyas is intended to enhance grasshopper by providing solutions to the user to allow grasshopper to be the central blank canvas for defining digital work flows for data concerning pre-processing, post processing, sorting, and object associativity.
Eyas is intended primarily for the AEC industry for solutions related to Building Information Modelling (BIM).
Eyas is provides low latency solutions for manipulating data, both native grasshopper and native rhino document objects, using principles of object attributes, data tables and dictionaries, using a NoSQLapproach. Data is stored in memory using key value and field name field value methods. Excel is tightly integrated to provide pre and post processing options for manipulation of the data.
Three flavors of components are available for a user to choose:
The different flavors provide increased order of complexity to the user.
Eyas provides a fast interoperable link with excel, allowing for content management and documentation of grasshopper data. Volatile data can be easily managed and documented. Eyas allows for associative relationships to be automatically generated between reference geometry knowing only the geometric description of the object.
Eyas provides tools for fast data mining of any type of grasshopper volatile and reference data using a zero canvas latency link with Excel. Associative relationships can be defined between rhino objects using user defined keys which are stored in custom components called EyasDictionaries. EyasDictionaries may be filtered using user defined string patterns. Users may define custom workflows for manipulating data on the canvas with a live synchronized link for reading and writing data to Excel.
Eyas allows a user to track volatile data from anywhere on the canvas. Once created, a dictionary can be accessed from anywhere on the canvas. Volatile data created by grasshopper may now be assigned user ids and retrieved. This allows for relational database type work flows with volatile data with or without the use of Excel.

 An ORM is a "virtual object database", http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object-relational_mapping
 There are two type of data in grasshopper, volatile and reference geometry. Reference geometry is persistent geometric rhinoceros object data such as text, lines, curves. This data persists outside of a grasshopper session. Volatile data is data that exists only in memory during a grasshopper session.
