generative modeling for Rhino
There's a couple of quirks with the GSA interaction by COM. One is that the plugin needs to either start a new model (or open a model via com, right click ssiBake button) when it first interacts (shakes hands) with GSA. The other is that this error will get thrown if you have manually closed a model (I guess I could add a similar means to close a model from Rhino). If can avoid closing the model great. If not, restarting Rhino (and maybe restarting GSA) should return things to normal. I normally have GSA active as an application before I bake, if you are only accessing results from the solving components then the plugin will start GSA as a background application when it first sends data.
Does this make sense?
Yes it makes sense. It works. In GSA there is a difference compared to when the mesh is exported using ssiGSAMeshToGWA in Rhino. Here is the difference;

The 2D elements don't show in the first picture. I could not find other element properties in GeomGym which add this property. What causes the difference?
