algorithmic modeling for Rhino

VisualARQ Grasshopper Components


VisualARQ Grasshopper Components

VisualARQ Grasshopper Components allows to create and work with VisualARQ architectural objects inside Grasshopper.

You can create easily walls, doors, windows, openings, beams, columns, roofs, slabs, stairs and railings and obtain their information (area, volume, length, etc...)

Once the VisualARQ geometry is baked, it turns into workable VisualARQ objects inside Rhino. Then you can use the VisualARQ features to create section drawings, floor plans, schedule tables, etc.. and export the full model in IFC file format into BIM platforms such as Revit, ArchiCAD, Tekla, etc...

The VisualARQ Grasshopper Components are automatically installed when installing VisualARQ.

Thanks Francesc, I was able to do the three panel door already thanks to your reply. Though, where can I download the VisualARQ Grasshopper Components WIP 3? I only found WIP 2 in Food4Rhino.

Hi Fernando,

You can create doors and windows with more than 2 panels from the door and window styles dialog. Just follow the steps of the new style wizard. In the new VisualARQ Grasshopper Components WIP 3 version, you will be able also to create new window and door styles directly in Grasshopper.

Hi, does anyone know how to create sliding doors with more than 2 panels?

Also, is there a way to create custom openings in walls like you do in Revit with the Edit Profile option?

couldyou give me your email address, the file is a bit heavy and I don´t want to post it here ;)

when I bake the curves and copy them to a new rhino file and reference them back to gh it works, but not directly in my definition...

Hi Patric,

Please attach the .gh and .3dm files in order we can check them out and try to figure out wha't happening. Thanks!
