algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Grasshopper 0.7.0001 (or rather, Grasshopper 1.0 WIP April-30 2010 as I've been instructed to call it) is now available for download from this location:

This version is a major change from 0.6.X and it is very likely that there will be numerous serious problems with 0.7 for at least a few weeks to come. I'm maintaining the 0.6.00059 download in case anyone needs to fall back onto a working version in a hurry.

Do not use this version on important work and do not overwrite files made with previous versions.

This new version is based on the RhinoCommon SDK which is still in its infancy and not anywhere near as tested and proven as the 'old' DotNET SDK. There's not that much new stuff in this release, it mainly represents a platform switch.

Here's a list of things that definitely won't work in 0.7:
  • It won't work in Rhino5
  • Sweep1
  • Sweep2
  • Pipe
  • Any custom components developed for 0.6.X
Here's a list of things that probably won't work:
  • Slider Animations
  • VB and C# scripts written in 0.6.X (I've tried to maintain legacy support, but I probably missed a few cases)
Here's a list of stuff we don't know won't work:
  • Yeah... wouldn't that be nice... I suppose this is where you come in.

Note that a lot of components have been shuffled in a desperate attempt to bring some order and simplicity to the over-crowded toolbars. Many of them are now only available via the drop-down panels. Others have been merged into new master components (Addition for example now works on Colours, Numbers, Integers, Vector, Points and Complex Numbers).

Have fun testing and don't claim I didn't warn you,

What are the corner tick marks? They look similar to a bounding volume but not always.
Preview settings drag-n-drop interface is really cool!
Yeah, niceeee :) Catenary component it's cool too :)
It's a debugging tool. It helps me to see how big the Grasshopper document 'thinks' all it's geometry is. They'll probably disappear sometime soon when there are no more display issues left.

When you say "not always", do you mean they are sometimes too small or too large to be the bounding volume?

I was just drawing a sphere to test the preview settings. The bounding volume didn't change when the radius had a setting of 10 or less.
I see it. It's because of Planes. They have a fixed boundingbox with the radius of 10 units. I'll fix it so it uses the display size.

I'm seeing the asterisks for inputs that have an expression operating on them. Do the brackets on the [P] input for [Angle] mean anything?

Oh, the Function and Scriptable components also have inputs with brackets...
Square brackets mean the input is optional. I.e. the component will run even if you supply no data. I'm not entirely sure this was a good decision. I think it makes more sense to add a symbol for Flattening and to remove the Optional brackets.

Any suggestions for how to show Flatten=True?

Was it you who already suggested italics? Leaning text = something falling down = tree stump... But just italics might not be visually discernable enough.






Still pondering brackets.
what about different color text for optional, like blue
Possible, hadn't considered that yet. All colours are skinnable as of 0.7 but blue could be the default...
