Is there a native and/ or non-native way to toggle a specific component preview on/ off parametrically?
Currently I’m either doing this:
Or constructing something like this:
For testing I often need to toggle component Previews, but using the Stream Filter Toggle method can kill the downstream data. Then the data needs to be regenerated every time I toggle the ‘preview’. With bigger data sets this can take a long time to re-compute.
I’d like to be able to toggle the preview for some components using a remote button (etc), without having to regenerate the downstream data.
Right-click component > Preview also means flying around the canvas (time consuming on a complex definition) and having to be more organized than I think is necessary (i.e. using Named Views and Jump buttons to hop around the canvas and Group Labels to remind myself which components to turn toggle preview off and on.
I think it’d be more efficient to make a control panel on one portion of the canvas where possible.
I’d love to see something like this in Grasshopper 2:
