2010 New Version of Grasshopper and Rhino 5 Released

leave a comment

A few days ago McNeel has released a new version of the Rhino 5 beta (although I’m not sure how much longer they can call it a beta when they state that it is now MORE stable than Rhino 4). The new version includes some great new features involving the implementation of python as a new scripting language for Rhino. Check out the new python scripting subdomain on Rhino’s site..

In addition, today David Rutten released a new version of Grasshopper (either called 0.7 or 1.0 WIP). This is a major release for grasshopper so many things have changed. Specifically, custom scripts will probably have to be reworked as the underlying connection to RhinoCommon commands has changed.

leave a comment

Workshop instructors Andy Payne and Jason Kelly Johnson are hard at work developing the next version of Firefly, a new Grasshopper toolbar that will streamline communication between GH, the Internet and the Arduino board. A series of new custom components within Firefly will allow two-way communication between physical interactive models and parametric digital models created in Grasshopper. This new toolbar will be released exclusively during the AA/CCA BioDynamic Structures Global Workshop.
