Will Pearson replied to raja's discussion Installation error in the group Plankton
"Hi Parivardhan, I don't think the issue here is with Plankton. Try connecting a mesh directly to the "PMesh" input of the Python script component. The error here is telling you that, in your case, PMesh is not a PlanktonMesh,…"

Will Pearson replied to David Bachman's discussion Kangaroo inside Anemone loop to change geometry during simulation in the group Kangaroo
"Nice work! One tip on your use of Plankton... Instead of hardcoding the full path to the Plankton assemblies as it is on your machine, if you use something like the following then it will work out of the box on other machines :) import…"

Will Pearson commented on Daniel Piker's group Plankton
"Farah – When/where are you seeing this error? Have you unblocked all the .dll/.gha files? (right-click, properties, unblock) Jay – Plankton doesn't have very many components as it's mostly used for scripting. I wonder if this…"

Will Pearson replied to David Bachman's discussion "AddPlanktonMesh" component or Python equivalent? in the group Plankton
"You're welcome :) Do you have a little link in the corner that says "JUMP TO"? I'll admit it's not very discoverable...."

Will Pearson replied to David Bachman's discussion "AddPlanktonMesh" component or Python equivalent? in the group Plankton
"Hi Dave, This script might help you with constructing plankton meshes in Python. Note, there are several different ways of "importing" Plankton in a Python script component. See my answer to your question about conway…"

Will Pearson commented on Daniel Piker's group Kangaroo
"Hi AJ, can you describe in what way the grab component is not working? The more detail you can provide, the more help you'll get! What version of Kangaroo are you using? What error messages (if any) are you getting when trying to use the grab…"

Will Pearson replied to Andy VanMater's discussion truncating in the group Plankton
"The value should be between 0.0 and 0.5. The argument is the normalised length of a halfedge. Can you send me an example file, please? I've used this in the past successfully, but it sounds like you might have found a bug..."

Will Pearson replied to Mihai Pruna's discussion Plankton standalone? in the group Plankton
"Sure, just reference Plankton.dll and not Plankton.gha (all the rhino/grasshopper related stuff is in the GHA). It's just an implementation of a data-structure which is optimised for querying neighbouring mesh elements in manifold meshes.…"

Will Pearson replied to Devang Chauhan's discussion RhinoCommon Python
"Devang, this is an unfortunate limitation of the documentation software that we use. It's only capable of generating code snippets for C# and VB.NET. However, in certain places we've started to add our own sample code and here you'll…"

Will Pearson replied to Jakob Grave's discussion Trouble with Kangaroo Component "Mesh Machine" in the group Kangaroo
"Hi Jakob. The MeshMachine that Grasshopper is complaining about came bundled inside the original Kangaroo. I see you have version 0.96 installed. Try upgrading to 0.99 (or later?)."

Will Pearson replied to fouadnhm's discussion error in kangaro in the group Kangaroo
"Are you sure you've unblocked all the files? I'd suggest trying the new Kangaroo2 instead, if you're just starting now."

Will Pearson commented on Daniel Piker's group Plankton
"Josh, please let us know how you get on! I've used Plankton on the Mac via compiled Grasshopper components (MeshMachine, for example) but not yet via scripting as that's only available for Rhino right now, not Grasshopper. Please shout if…"

Thanks Will,

I just realised that you are at Rambolls, we are actually working with you guys on a stadium. We are just round the corner, Pattern Design. 

To be honest i currently have no need for that tool, i was just being a magpie, saw something shiny that i wanted. But it looks like it will be very useful, i will check it out!

Hey Will

I came across giraffe on github. Your description says it includes a gh component, but i cant find one. Is there anything in particular i need to do to install it?

Thanks for your help
