algorithmic modeling for Rhino

I was designing an interface for managing geometry as curves for the components of Peacock, when I realized that could be a lot cooler to store the definition that generates the geometry, rather than just the geometry. I think this may be of interest to many, not only for Peacock users, so I did it in a separate project.

This may be a continuation of the work of Andrew Heumann, Create Snippets With Grasshopper.


Is the first time I make a form with controls so I launched a public beta for those who want to collaborate. You can find the VS project on GitHub.


Any feedback is welcome.

Hi Daniel,

This simply is a MUST HAVE component.

I work with Ladybug and Honeybee a lot and it is a standard practice to keep the definitions clean and empty for next time because of nature of the analysis it provides, so Brick Box is a real game changer. I'll recommend it to all my friends. 

Thanks you so much for making it nice and simple.

@Piotr, great, thanks for telling me.

@dvdrbls, buff, I can not think what else to do. The .net version (4) of the component is the that comes by default in the gh template for Visual Studio. I have not been able to change the project to a lower version (and higher versions allready you've tried). I do not know what else can I do, if I have another option I will tell you.

Daniel, enabling and disabling the "COFF" option doesn't make a difference with any of the .gha =(

Hi Daniel

I was the first one to report the NET incompatibility. Now, after installing Brick for 4.5.1 everything works fine.

Have you tried to disable the "COFF" option from the DeveloperGrasshopperSettings command? If not, disable it and restart rhino+gh. Tell me if works or not.

=( even doing what it says, it doesnt work for me

Command: Grasshopper
An error occured during GHA assembly loading:
  Path: C:\Users\DELL\AppData\Roaming\Grasshopper\Libraries\GhBrickBox.gha
The GHA file is either damaged or has been made with
a newer version of .NET than Grasshopper itself.
You can try toggling the "Memory Load" option in the
GrasshopperDeveloperSettings command window, it might help.
Command: _CommandHistory

Then try with some of this .gha wich are compilled in different versions of .NET (all above 4).
