algorithmic modeling for Rhino



Hummingbird is a set of Grasshopper components that facilitate the creation of Revit native geometry. This process exports basic geometric properties and parameter data to CSV text files which is used to describe many aspects of the Revit BIM geometry. In Revit this data is easily imported using the Whitefeet Modelbuilder tool (included).

Translating Rhino primative geometry to Revit has been vastly simplified without the need for linking or reference objects. This allows for the downstream Revit model to be modified and adapted for the project duration.

It probably does.  Build is based on Office 2010.

Comment by Johan Rooijackers on September 12, 2012 at 6:01am

Does the Exel version have any influence? Running MS Office 2007...

Comment by Johan Rooijackers on September 12, 2012 at 5:59am

Thank you.

Got a bit further. As described in the docx the Hummingbird components in the example file are red.

The error message is something like:

Microfost.Interupt.Excel......PublicKeyToken or dependencies missing.....

Can't give a screen shot, becoause Rhino crashes instantly.

What could be wrong?

Yes in the downloads folder there is a docx file named Hummingbird.docx.  This document explains the installation steps.  thanks,

Hi, just joined the group. So here's a basic question, is there a guide on how to install WF ModelBuilder?

Tried renaming .dll path in the .addin file, but don't work...

A little help is much apreachiated.

I don't exactly understand your problem.  If you are upgrading be sure that you completey remove the old versions from you computer.  Then run this:

When the old version is completely gone then load the new ones.  If you still get an error please take some screen shots and give us some more description of what is happening.
