FABTOOLS on Mac - Components Menu not showing

Hello - I’m trying to use Fabtools on MAC OS. I have installed them, and am able to run the example files, but the components are not showing up in the menu tab. Has anyone else had this issue and/or suggestions for any handy solutions?


Hi @zenshinkisu,

My guess would be that the plugin is simply not compatible with Rhino for macOS. The developer website also doesn’t mention mac support. If you installed the plugin correctly, restarted Rhino, and it doesn’t show up or the components don’t work, this usually means that the plugin is Wind’ohs only. :wink:

This is an interesting case. The .gha seems to be responsible for installing a few Rhino plug-ins when it’s first loaded, along with several Grasshopper user-objects (the components that aren’t showing up). This process silently fails on the Mac. The example files still work because user-objects are essentially embedded in the Grasshopper file when they’re dropped on the canvas. Worth getting in touch with the developer to see if they can help you out!
