Exit/close Rhino.Inside without restarting Revit?

Hi All,

Apologies if I have missed something, but does anyone have a robust method of closing Rhino.Inside, without having to restart Revit?

Clicking the close button seems to just hide RhinoWIP & Grasshopper. Even when restarting Revit, I will be prompted whether I want to save the Rhino & Grasshopper files when reopening a Revit file.

I cant even seem to find it running in Task manager to be able to force close it?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Morgan,

When you load Rhino inside Revit, it loads as a Revit Add-In not as a separete Application.
That’s the reason you can not find Rhino in the task manager.

And since it is loaded as a Revit Add-In and not as an Application it is not unloaded until Revit closes.

Hi - thanks for getting back so quickly.

Ok. Unfortunately, Rhino.Inside seems to slow our model down quite considerably, and often causes graphics glitches. Having to close and reopen Revit each time is becoming very cumbersome.

Do you think that this is something that might be able to be solved in the future? Or, do you think it will always stay this way?

Thanks again.

Rhino.Inside should only react to changes in your model if you have a Grasshopper definition loaded that references geometry from your Revit model.

So you can try two things:

  1. Disable the Grasshopper previews from the Ribbon.
  2. Closing all the Grasshopper definitions you have opened.

If after this you still notice any slowdown we may have a bug, please share if doing so helps.

Hello @kike , sorry for bringing back this old topic.
I wonder if there is any change in how RIR is managed once it has been launched in Revit.
I have found that while RIR is running, Enscape in Revit becomes unresponsive, and many of its functions are unavailable. The only way to fix it is to restart Revit and not start RIR.

This is not a huge deal. However, it slows down to provide quick support to teams working on large models.


Hi Chris,

Is the Enscape up to date? There have been shared .dll conflicts in the past.

Are you also loading the Enscape plugin in Rhino as well? You can disable in Rhino via File>Properties>Plugins

Once the process is launched inside Revit memory space Revit will need to be closed to release.

Hello @Japhy many thanks for that trick. The latest Enscape version still conflicts with RIR. Therefore, Enscape needs to be disabled in Rhino to work smoothly in Revit when running RIR in the same session.
