Hello Sir,

I want help from Grasshopper user .. I have file AutoCAD for masterplan I want to add it to Grasshopper.

I don't have file GIS, All I had is file dwg and analysis I did by Photoshop as (Existed Landuse,Heights, Street Widith, .. etc).I want to make relation between building height (with its ducts openings) and width of streets.

What I know that import Autocad in Rihno but the progress to do in grasshopper, I have not enough information about it (I am not professional Grasshopper user ).

And what to import in Rhino is the outline of masterplan not with the existed building .. This is what I know must be done.

All I want to do is a Conceptual urban planning .. I watched a tutorial for it but I don't succeed in do it. 

The link ...

Thank you, 

Sherif El Adawy

Hello Daniel,

First off, Great Work! I'm doing a dissertation on optimising the urban form for daylighting, operation energy use, and outdoor comfort. I was curious if you plan on packaging your scripting into a grasshopper component? I'm particularly interested in the aspect of your work which manipulates the urban form as it seems very intuitive and flexible.

Hi Daniel, thank you for your answer, it's really helpful! I hope I can get to the point where I am able to interact with a DB at some point, probably using Python rather than C#. And thank you for sharing, too.

Hi Stephane - the side panel is the Remote Control Panel from Grasshopper, and I run a C# component that gets it to automatically updates slider values from the SQL database, based on which parcel/plot surface I select in the Rhino viewport...

Hi! This looks great! How did you get this side panel to manage your parameters right inside Rhino? It says "Grasshopper", so I guess it standard, though it really looks custom made.

Anyway, thank you for the inspiration!
