Get Rhino Attributes - more data types (material!)

Daily I use both Elefront and Human plugin, but the way they treat geometry (for example blocks) is different and often they don't work together. What is lacking in Elefront is the number of types of…Continue

Thanks for responding, I look forward to it!

Meanwhile I'm using Human's dynamic pipelines, but that's overkill: I don't need to monitor constantly, I just want to kick it with a boolean input when the data has changed. 

And I'd rather have an all-Elefront solution.  <3

Hi Bathsheba, we had the auto update function at the very beginning of the plugin development, but ran into some problems while triggering the update. I will test some new ideas for implementing this function.

Hi, I'd like to add myself to the group requesting automatic or programmatic updates to reference components.  I don't want to do this by hand in any way, I need Grasshopper to be able to kick the update by itself, ideally by a boolean input.

Hope we'll one day see this feature, thanks!

it works fine in rhino 5.

would there be an update for rhino6 sometime soon?

@Archy Bloom, this will eventually be bundled with the next update of Elefront, but here is a link for the plugin.

Hi, Ramon. Is there a way to show elefront attributes panel in rhino like the way you showed in morpheus webinar?

Comment by Ramon van der Heijden on October 9, 2017 at 7:34am
Hi Jun Wang. You can select all reference components, right click anywhere on the canvas (not on a component) and click "enable". This will trigger a refresh on all selected components. Hope it helps.

@Dharman,

Super helpful! Much appreciated, guess I really need to look into keyboard shortcuts again!

Aside from that, I still think having a bool input to control the update exactly like the bake node would be really nice, if you are considering new features for the next update.

Comment by Dharman Gersch on October 7, 2017 at 11:56pm
Jun Luke Wang,
Usually i just use the F5 key to recompute the whole definition, or enable selected components with the spacebar menu, which also recomputes them and any dependabt nodes. Quicker than using the right mouse menu and selecting update component. Hope this helps
