We are happy to announce another update to the 1.x series of goat, an optimization solver component for Grasshopper. This release is the first to support the 64-bit versions of Rhino 5. As usual, this version is available for download at
The main new features comprise:
Please have a quick look at the new installation and update instructions at http://rechenraum.com/goat/documentation.html. In short, delete all old goat files from your Grasshopper's Components directory before copying the new files in.
Thanks to all who provided feedback to track down the 64-bit issue!
is there a release for the newest version of grasshopper (0.9.0014)
please give latest goat version 1.4 a try. I have not yet received any negative reports regarding gh 0.9.0014. If you encounter any problems with goat 1.4 and gh 0.9.0014, please let me know.
I just updated to gh 0.9.0014 and I can't reproduce your problems. Could you please
If this does not help, please let me know your Rhino (4, 5 32bit, 5 64bit), Grasshopper and goat versions.
i have the same problem like bea!
im using rhino 4 sr9, grasshopper 0.9.0014. i tried to use goat 1.4 32 bit.
Thanks madmax for your message. Have you checked above two points ("only one installation of goat" and "correct installation of goat")? In particular, please make sure that in your Grasshopper's User Components directory, there are
Please let me know your findings, best
your first sentence makes me wonder whether you installed goat correctly (please note that installation instructions changed). Please check and confirm, that you simply copied the entire contents of the goat installation archive over to Grasshopper's User Component directory. As a result, you should have two files ("goat_main.gha", "goat_includes.gha") and two directories ("goat_32bit", "goat_64bit") there.
If you have three goat related files only, you did not install goat correctly. "goat_nlopt.dll" must be located in the "goat_32bit" and "goat_64bit" directories.
No matter what the cause is, I assume that is a problem with goat that we will fix soon, so no Windows update will be necessary.
