algorithmic modeling for Rhino




Chameleon is a plugin for both Grasshopper and Revit with a focus on interoperability, simulation, and efficient practice workflows. Chameleon’s main advantage is its ability to facilitate easy transfer of geometric data between Grasshopper and Autodesk Revit, but also includes other valuable tools to make life easier, both in Grasshopper and Revit.

Hi, I have just installed Chamaleon but I only get the interopelability set of commands, not the simulation one and the Utilities ones.

Hi Hiroshi

I really would like to have the "Geometry transfer" with Mass families in Vasari. Have you any plans about make add-in for Vasari agian, or are you only focusing on Revit now?
