algorithmic modeling for Rhino



Check out Aviary

Parrot's functionality has been rolled into Aviary.

Parrot is no longer supported

Parrot is a Windows Forms based data visualization plugin.

The three goals for Parrot are

  • Provide realtime data visualization from grasshopper through charts, graphs, tables and text with custom formatting.
  • Expedite the production of report layouts combining model visualizations, custom graphics
  • Create a compact and easy to layout dashboard for grasshopper.

One small update to the user object collection, the Form component was not returning the form name when not activated. This has been corrected. You can download version 0.2 now

Parrot is still under (slow) development.

The WIP version should hopefully be released soon.

The question is how much of what is redundant to UI should be removed.

this is a very good idea, congratulations.

I read that you are thinking to not implement the tool because it's already present in Human UI? actually I think that is till very limited.

Is limited the possibility to set the charts options i.e. is not possible to set the limits and name of the vertical axis of a vertical bar chart,  the clustered bar chart is not working, when trying to export the window often it make Rhino crash (and is not clear in which format it would export). I think would be very good if you develop this tool having the possibility to set many options of the charts, also seeing it directly into GH maybe in one sort of window component and most of all with usable export proprties like having the possibility to export in pdf of jpg directly from GH. Thank you.
