I have a workflow that takes in a bunch of models, manipulates them, and stores the results in the file system. I’ve written all the manipulation in a grasshopper file that reads in a .3dm model, does some stuff to it, and then I bake the results manually. But I’d like to automate this from the command line for a bunch of models. There are (at least!) two problems I’m uncertain about.
Is it possible to start grasshopper from the command line with file arguments so the ReadFile or other grasshopper component can pick the correct file automatically?
Is there a way to automate baking the results so I can retrieve the file with the results in my batch script?
If I’m taking totally the wrong approach here, that too would be good to know…
EDIT: I’ve just uncovered a forum post about a tool called pollination that may do what I need. I tried deleting this post but don’t seem to have the permissions to do so – my apologies.
