algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Hi Everyone,

After a long time coming, the complete Firefly toolkit has finally been upgraded for Rhino 5.0 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions).  This new release includes an updated C_sawapan_media.dll (many thanks to Panagiotis Michalatos!) as well as a new installer!  

The installer should automatically remove any previous versions, and copy all of the core Firefly Grasshopper Assembly files (as well as any needed dependencies) into the roaming Libraries folder on your computer.  Additionally, it should automatically copy all of the necessary Arduino sketches into your sketchbook folder (usually found in the Arduino folder under My Documents).  If this folder does not exist, it will create one for you.  Additionally, it should also create a new Firefly folder under My Documents where it will place all of the current Grasshopper example files for you to use.

There are no 'new' components in this release (although I've been working on some fun new ones... including one for the Leap controller... will be posting more about this soon) although this release does mark a big milestone for the plugin.  All future releases will now target .NET 4.0 and will thus only be compatible with Rhino 5.0 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions).  Rhino 4.0 users can still use the existing build 1.0067.

To download the latest version of Firefly, visit:

PS.  Please let me know if you find any issues with the installer.  It's a work in progress :)

I'm missing the networking components for firefly which I just installed.  I'm trying to communicate using the UDP and or OSC Listener tools to communicate with MAXMSP.  Do these need to be installed independently?  Am I missing something in the install process?  I updated my .net for windows to the most current and still don't seem to have nearly as many icons as in the firefly users guide.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi again Andy, there are no audio components in the new version, right?
