Dear,How to bake lines?

Comment by Ángel Linares on March 1, 2013 at 4:20am

Hey Nathan!, I think I've found a bug: the bake component is not able to bake "line" geometry, you need to convert it to Curves. Hope this helps :) Thanks for the plugin and awesome work.

Hej Nathan, I somehow have problems naming the geometry I want to save with lunchbox. Its always called " .obj "  or " .3ds ", depeding on the format of course. I tried both panels and strings for the name input. None of them works. 

thx in advance,


I'm running rhino5 32 bit,  win7pro 64bit

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

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.

Comment by Nathan Miller on August 9, 2012 at 7:31am


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?


Comment by Patrick Delorey on August 9, 2012 at 6:43am

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.
