You have no right to request that. In other words, please kindly stop from expressing your opinion, it wastes space. Ridiculous and utterly offensive. Even more, when my posts are the most contributing in terms of helping the OP solve his present day problem, thing I actually did by providing a working solution. Who are you to tell me my posts waste space?! Amazing.
Moreover, if the result of my opinion, for you, is “quashing legitimate unrest” then I must be doing quite a good job proving you wrong. Rest assure that I will continue to express my opinion whether it quashes yours or not. And if it does, if I were you, I would question the legitimacy of my complains. It appears, my opinions don’t get easily rejected as invalid/quashed like yours.
How is that patronizing?! The analogy isn’t patronizing nor wrong. Rhino was not designed for Architects. Period. That is a fact. All these things you ask it is lacking because architects were never, are not, and possibly never will be the main target audience.
Also, if I remember correctly, @osuire has expressed multiple times how he finds Rhino simple and nice. That’s what Paint is. Simple and nice, but for some reason, he is trying to turn Rhino into a BIM modeller, which it is not. Do you think Industrial Designers use BIM? They don’t. There are many BIM modellers out there which do all the things you require and more. Revit is a battleship, why should Rhino (Paint) do what Revit does?! Rhino is already extremely good at what it was designed to do.
Sure, in utopia, we would all love our software having the best from both worlds right? Being simple, easy, tidy, while having the functionality of +10 software, all in one. Guess what, no can’t do. You love grasshopper but don’t have blocks. Well, consider changing to Dynamo and sacrifice some of the things you love.
How good of a reason do you think this is? Seriously?
I don’t know about VisualARQ, but Elefront is quite reliable. Check out this:
I don’t think I can estimate how much that feature costs to develop or implement in Rhino. Oh wait, VisualARQ already did that, then I guess their estimate must be the most accurate one.
You can always go Revit for $2,425 a year… VisualARQ seems like quite a good deal.
This is quite funny actually, you are actually demanding McNeel to develop for you for FREE what VisualARQ offers for $795. Wouldn’t that be nice huh?
From VisualARQ FAQs:
Is VisualARQ a McNeel Product?
VisualARQ has been developed by Asuni CAD, a company specialized in software development and distribution for architectural design, engineering, landscaping and industrial design. Based in Barcelona, Asuni CAD and McNeel Europe belong to the same company group, working in close collaboration with this and other projects.
I wonder if group refers to as a corporate group, as in a single economic entity group…
I trust McNeel more than everyone to take this decision and evaluate the pros and cons, as this is their economic sustain. If Rhino dies, you change software nothing happens, McNeel loses their entire business. They are the ones wanting their software to remain relevant, more than anyone on this thread.
