Can i set it on 'catchment analysis' ? Set the input on cth_min?

Hi pirouz

In the context of zonning analysis, you show in the paper an ilustration of zonning diagram in 5 minutes walking distance. If i want to get the zonning diagram in case of 3 minute walking distance within, what should i do?

Hi, possibly, it might have been the previous GH (0075); but my guess is: this is most probably because of a missing geometric object. Do you have both closed a set of plot polygons and a network of lines?

Comment by Jonathan Wiederin on December 11, 2017 at 7:50am


I get the error: "Solution exception:Object reference not set to an instance of an object" in the PlotMeasures Component.

I thought i may be using the wrong grasshopper or rhino version...

Hi  Jonathan Wiederin,

The WIP version was developed for the latest GH and Rhino5. 

Any installation challenge?

Comment by Jonathan Wiederin on December 11, 2017 at 7:09am

Hey Pirouz

Could yo please tell which version of Grasshopper and Rhino you are using?


Comment by Pirouz Nourian on December 11, 2017 at 3:39am

Hi Michael, We have switched to Accord.NET for the new version (to be released hopefully before Christmas). I know it can be difficult to find Math.NET without going through installations. For the time being, I don't know if the licence allows me to share the dll publicly here. Could you please send me an email to

Best regards,

I am trying to install this as the GSI / FSI functions look interesting.

I am stuck on the stuff as they seem only to provide the libraries in some Microsoft Visual Studio compressed format from which I cannot extract the required dlls. Am I missing something?

Thank You for the advice. I will try qgis.

I`m using the WIP Version from your website.

If your new version of Cheetah is ready i would be glad to test it.

Comment by Pirouz Nourian on November 30, 2017 at 9:23am

BTW,  Jonathan Wiederin, are you using the WIP version from my website or the last GHA version?
