Beaver - still available?

Hi all, I am new to Rhinoceros, I work for a company that produces CLT panels and I wanted to try Beaver for exporting geometry in bvx format (Hundegger CNC machines) but I can’t download from the Grasshopper page, is there some sort of problem with this plugin? Anyone tried that before?

Thank you

Hi, Daniele! I’ve got the same question. How to export from Rhino/Grasshopper to Cambium (Hundegger)?
Have you solved it?

No, eventually we abandoned the idea and we stuck with Cadwork, which is a dedicated software. Apparently Beaver is abandoned :pensive:

Hey there, we are currently developing our own GH/Hundegger plugin. The scope of our current project is pretty limited so the plugin only implements a few operations for now.
We plan to expand on functionality and release it in the future. If you have any specific ideas we can get in touch.

Hi, I would be interested in this plugin, do you have a site or something where I can follow the project?


The project is listed here:

As I said, the BVN component is just a small subset of the project and not reflected there. Once we have a viable component we will probably release it to Food4Rhino.

@HaLo any update on the realse date of the plugin?

we had other issues in the base geometry algorithm to fix first, BVN got pushed back a little.

I’m still not sure of the way to implement the creation of a BVN object in a consistent way. Currently we might just export the BVN as a way of serialization of a custom geometry object.

The main obstacle is that we would have to do a lot of (at least for us) unneccesary checks on the base geometry and keep track of the validity of all the operations if we wanted to have the option to add/insert opertions sequentially.
The GH way to handle changes would be to create a modified copy of the original… so we would end up with 6 useless copies of the same element if we add 6 operations. That’s just not very efficient.
