We've been making some tools that give us more control over the transition of data between grasshopper and other design platforms.  So far we have connections from Grasshopper to Revit and Catia V5.

You can check out an example and download the plugins from our post:…

Animating through Transformation Matrices in Grasshopper

We put together a user object for animating transformation matrices in GH.  This remaps each matrix value between an identity matrix and the final transformation from a given GH component with an "X" output.  For more info, check out our post here:…

Hi Erick,

The current Firefly website is:  Unfortunately, the new service I'm using doesn't support a discussion board (at the moment).  I'm looking at implementing a 3rd party service... but haven't had the time to do it.  I would recommend posting any questions under the Firefly Group page on the Grasshopper site.  There are a decent amount of discussions running on that site and people can go and look for solutions to other problems as well.

As for your question about needing more juice... do you need more power? or more speed?  Steppers actually have more power the slower you run them... so if you're running it at full capacity then you might be trading off some torque power.  In addition, steppers are usually a little less powerful than servos (and other motors)... but you gain the ability to precisely control them for more than 180 (which is one limitation of servos).  Here's a good tutorial explaining some fundamentals of stepper motors: and here's a really good explanation of different types of motors and how they work:  You may have to skip ahead a little bit to get to the motor control stuff.
