algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Version 1.1.0 (2015-11-22): A new version of GHLauncher is ready for download, Check out this video for details on new features:

This version works on 64-bit version of Rhino 5 SR8 or later.

Download the installation file below.

GHLauncher 1.1.0.exe

Version 1.0.1 (2015-10-08): To work with a .gh / .ghx file we always need to open rhinoceros and then run grasshopper command and then open our file.

I think it would be much better if it was possible to run these files directly from explorer. i searched for the solution of this problem, but i couldn't find anything. (but i'm not sure, maybe there is an obvious way to open these file directly.)

So i wrote myself a small visual basic hack to make this procedure as short as possible.

I thought maybe someone else would have the same problem so i decided to share this hack here.

To make it works, you must download the installation file and execute it. after finishing the installation, all .gh / .ghx files should automatically associate with my program (called GHLauncher.exe), every time you double click on a .gh / .ghx file, this program should automatically open rhino, run grasshopper command, and open the file.

I only test this program on my computer (windows 10, Rhinoceros 5 SR12 64-bit, Grasshopper 0.9.0076) and i'm not sure if it would work on other.

Same here. Could you solve this?

Good Job!

Hi Mahdiyar, after uninstalling Rh6 WIP, GHLauncher still attempts to open with it but fails. I think I deleted every small bit of  RH6 also in AppData. Also a uninstall and reinstall of GHLauncher did not fix this. Is there some way I can back it get to open files again?

Thanks, phillip

Hi! Bug report!

GHLauncher stopped working after uninstalling RhinoWIP. Tried to reinstall, but no luck.

Windows said these files could be of help, so here you are...

Luckily I have a clean snapshot of my Windows VM, so no rush :)

Cheers, and thanks for this useful tool.



Ok so, cleaning the registry from rhino 6 keys actually helps a bit. WIndows doesn't show an error anymore, and GHLauncher "open" works. "new" does nothing but show the cmd window. Any ideas anyone?

This is great! Thank you Mahdiyar.

Great job !

Mahdiyar, this is grand.  Only thing is -- it launches WIP.  How could I get it to just use Rh5?


hi tnx i dont have weaverbird can you tell me where to download it?
