algorithmic modeling for Rhino

GH to SVG - your graphics directly from grasshopper by Co-de-iT

Inspired by this amazing dataviz images created by Simon Vorhammer I've decided to create a serie of Cluster/Componets in order to export directly the GH geometries & text to a SVG format.

So finally I had sometime to upload the GH to SVG (beta) definition.

"We all know the value of data in computational design field. Many times we need to inform our models with several flux of information and many times we need to show these information using dataviz or infoviz graphics. Co-de-iT decides to maximize the workflow speed in Grasshopper and code some components in order to expor realtime graphics in SVG format readable immediately in your favorite graphics software (Inkscape or Illustrator) or at live, dragging and dropping it in a new Chrome Browser tab.

The components are actually released as grasshopper clusters (they are literally syntax parsers that transform GH data in SVG objects syntax) in order to let anyone to implement the components with other features. The SVG code is really easy to be understand and coded!"

Read carefully the instructions and the entire post !!

Thanks for sharing this...I am having fun playing with this. FYI works well with Firefox as well... F5 in Firefox works same as in Chrome to update.

Importing into Inkscape also works, but background color isn't working. I will post back if I find a fix.

Thanks again for the contribution.
