algorithmic modeling for Rhino



BEAVER 0.2.0

Out now.

The BEAVER closes the gap between parametric modeling and automated panel fabrication.

The BEAVER is a BVX interface that enables you to direct manufacture panels on Hundeggers CNC Panelling machines PBA, SPM2 and SIP.

Information on machines and units:

The Component Enables you to define Panels with:

- mitered outline contours

- inline contours

- material thickness

- grain direction

- drill operations

- slit operations

- pocket operations

- textprinting

We also provide a first "system" that does direct manufacturing planing of a triangular tesselation of surfaces.

The recent version:

We did a first test with a 550-parts project. And had no problems. Even so, this is a Betaversion!

The Betaversion is limited to the export of 10 parts per session as we are still not 100% sure about the stability of the component.

Thanks for the response.  I tried it with Rhino 4.0 and got it to work easily, but I cannot get it to work with Rhino 5.0 and the latest version of Grasshopper.  I tried putting the .dll along with the .gha in both C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Grasshopper\Libraries, and C:\Program Files (x86)\Grasshopper for Rhino 5\Components\.

Just copy both of the files into the components folder.

File>Special Folders>Components Folder

That should work.

Hi, I am trying to figure out where the BVXLib.dll file goes.  Thanks!
