Error with the revolution component on Grasshopper in Rhino 6 WIP for Mac

Im trying to use the revolution component to revolve a structure around an axis and despite ensuring that the inputs are correct, the revolution component is giving an error stating: The object contains one error and under that is says Solution Exception: ON_RevSurface_Create. My course instructor didn’t even know what to do.

Any help would be much appreciated

Files? Screenshots?

I even tried using the revolution component in different scripts and it gives the same error

I think it might be related to this? I don’t have the mac version, but maybe it’s the same/similar issue?
Based on the error you show, I don’t think it’s anything that you can do at the moment, aside from trying an older, (or newer?) version…or using an approach that doesn’t use a revolve.


As requested, I have attached the grasshopper definiton and a screenshot of it below to show you how it appears on my computer.

Is there anything I can do about this in the meantime or do I need to wait for an update to fix the bug?

I don’t know. I’m still investigating.

Hi @o.ismail-

Sorry this took so long to test and verify. This is a bug RH-49621. Thank you for reporting it.

To be more precise, this is a bug in the RhinoWIP for Rhino 6 for Mac. That said, the definition you kindly uploaded does indeed work in Rhino 5 for Mac (tested in 5.5.2). Since you are using the RhinoWIP, you have access to Rhino 5 for Mac so you can fall-back to that until this bug is fixed.

Thanks again for reporting this and providing a definition!

Thanks a lot for looking into it, I ended up achieving my desired goal using different components.

Thanks again for your help

FYI, this should be fixed in the latest RhinoWIP. RevSrf should rev…surf. Please give it a spin :drum:
