Hello Pachyderm Users,
We are going through an exciting period, including the startup of an organization to support the growth of Pachyderm, and extend the educational agenda of the project. In the next few weeks, we will be submitting our long-form 501(c)3 application, which will give us the rights of a not-for-profit organization established in the state of Connecticut. As part of the transition, we are phasing out the old website. The new site will be up in the next few weeks, and you can find it at:
We are looking forward to the next phase of this project, and we hope that you will be there with us to learn and continue to support us!
kind regards,
Arthur van der Harten
Executive Director
Open Research in Acoustical Science and Education

Hi Arthur.

First of all, thanks for release me the plugin. I'm trying to install it on rhino 5, but when I drag the .rhp file it shows me this message:

Access to 'C:\Program Files\For Rhinoceros\Pach_Setting.pset' denied. Impossible load plug-in 'C:\Program FIles\For Rhinoceros\Pachyderm_Acoustic.rhp' 

What is the problem? Instead, the plug-in for GH works. Is it a problem if I use Pachyderm v.1 (which works) on Rhino and the v.2 on GH?
