algorithmic modeling for Rhino
(Edit. David sez: Please append your (well explained) ideas/suggestions/wishes. I don't care much for what you want, I care why you want it.)
Perhaps this topic has been covered recently, but I don't see any active threads. We're looking for a plugin project and I'd like to get some feedback from the power users before choosing something.
What is missing from grasshopper?
What would you like to connect to that you can't already connect to?
What kind of bottlenecks do you run into?
What secret wish do you have for Grasshopper that doesn't even seem possible?
What project have you been meaning to undertake but haven't had/won't have the time?
Just trying to brainstorm a few ideas here. There are so many great and useful plugins out there, it's hard to discover the gaps anymore.
Looking forward to your thoughts!
Novice here, sorry if these already exist (and please let me know where to find them if they do):
2D boolean tools (_CurveBoolean).
An increment/decrement button for sliders.
Some way of exploring large seed ranges more smoothly/accurately (a slider skips a lot of values and it can be a drag to try and find that one value that you just skipped by accident)
A way to force previewing even when the "only draw for selected" would be helpful.
Most of the time "only draw preview geometry for selected objects" becomes the default when files get complex, but you still want to preview some end result while trying to adjust something in the middle of the algorithm or click around and see what various things are doing from someone else's script.
