I would really like to see an updated UI for Rhino.
I understand that the most popular UI design language is flat, but I truly think that Rhino would benefit from flat UI design, and also, flat UI is the trend in design software, but that’s cos it works. These are scientific instruments that require a minimal look.
Even maybe if it’s easier to go closer to the new Windows design language, and adapt that look, it would be great. Rhino for Mac follows the MacOS design language further, so it would be a welcome change in the Windows version.
Maybe if the new UI design can unify a new unique Rhino look between the two OSs, should be the ultimate goal.
Don’t get me wrong. There are many great ideas in the current Rhino UI. Ex. Popout Toolbars, Toolbar stacking, Sub-Toolbars, Icon based UI, customization of certain UI params.
But, Rhino needs to get a modern look. We spend most of our day, looking at this beautiful piece of code, and create magnificent work, but its look is lacking behind.
If something like this is already cooking, I love to see more on it, and if there is a way I could help, I’d love to.
Is there a way for the community to build custom UI for Rhino [even Grasshopper], and what would you need to pull it off?
