"Should be there. It's not a static method, you need to look for it on an actual instance of GH_Document"

Hi Luis.
I have just seen an ad to your July workshop.
Is that cfd analysis screenshot?
What plugin will you be using for cfd analysis?
Thank you for the reply.

Hello Luis, fine to meet you here! After a long time of abstinence I am really glad to have some spare time to work and play with grasshopper again. Recently I did attend a course given by Steffen Riegas in Berlin for working with the VB Script Component. That opens new dimensions for me - but is not so easy for one who did learn programming before the OOP era..

I hope you are fine and send you my best wishes

Hi Luis,

Thank you for your continued grasshopper contributions. I was interested in having a chat regarding kml component. I too would be interested in having more control over color, camera and adding custom data.

Can we send data from grasshopper in one pc to grasshopper in another pc linked with lan using ghowl, to more processing... if yes, how? and will it be able to update the data stream if e change the parameters in the first pc? 


Is there a primer or a document/video of some sort as a tutorial...since m new to ghowl ?

Your Hexy grid definition was very useful to create my Pave builder for jewelry. I have posted it on the GJD3D website check it out and let me know what you think.

Thanks for sharing your ideas!

The attached definition will get you there.  There are some weird things happening when I switch locations...the time gets shifted.

I need to look further as it was very quickly implemented.  As you see, only 2 lines of code to mess around with the…
