A small wish - please make bake component workable with groups..,

Also It will be really nice to work with google spreadsheets as with exel tables

Nathan,

I'm running the most current version of LunchBox. I've had trouble reproducing the error in new files as well. On the bright side, the issue is more of an annoyance than catastrophic.

Patrick,

This is rather perplexing to me as well.  I am only able to repeat the problem within your file.  If I set up a similar bake system in any new file (re:  list of objects, list of layers) in v0.9006, it behaves as expected... only your file seems to be giving this trouble.  Have you upgraded to the newest version of LunchBox also?

Hello Nathan,

I've been working with Lunchbox with the latest release of the Rhino 5 beta (64-bit) in Grasshopper 0.9.006 and have run across a rather confusing problem.

When I bake a set of curves to a set of layers, I get duplicate geometry.

Running undo within Rhino ('Undo Grasshopper Solution') removes the duplicate geometry. Also, the baked geometry is always precisely twice the number of input objects. These two factors taken together, it would seem like it is executing the bake twice. Still, I can't figure out why this would be the case. Any thoughts? (Definition and template file attached)

This definition with the current release of LunchBox was working perfectly in Grasshopper 0.8.0066. It's only since upgrading to 0.9.0006 that I've found this issue. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to offer.

Definition: 20120809RoofGridTool.gh

Template: RoofGridTemplate.3dm

Try setting the division parameter to an even number.

Hello all,

I'm having issues with trying to design a diagrid for this model surface. I have attached a .pdf and .jpg image of the draped surface.

1. I used a "draped surface" to design the surface for the diagrid definition and then trimmed it to my desired specifications. However, the definitions I've found don't confine themselves to the parameters of the surface, they continue to the extents of original untrimmed surface. Is there a definition that will confine themselves and "fit" to the parameters of this newly edited surface?

 

2. I am trying to get a diagrid that will bake only the structural grid of the diagrid and then the glass component separately. I will be rendering this later and I need both components to be distinct of one another.

Please help, I am running out of time, I have been freaking out trying to figure this out and I have found nothing that helps my project. I've searched and found different definitions, tampered with them to fit my project and yet to no avail.

I am still learning this plug-in and I enjoy it's functions, PLEASE HELP!!!

Thanks,

Sim

Is there any chance to teah http read cyrillic letters or decode the result into cyrillic afterwards? (inside or outside grasshopper?)

Hi Nathan,

Thank you for your message and for your hard work on these components. We will wait as long as it is necessary for your next awesome update. I hope your move goes well :)

Bests,

Ali
