Hi asking an open general question here. I’m wondering, are most architectural people using Rhino because it has grasshopper?
Here is why I’m asking:
I’ve only been using Rhino and Grasshopper full time for about a year now, solely on multi-story commercial architectural design work. Previously I was using SketchUp and other tools for conceptual modeling, and I still use Revit for production work as-needed.
The only issue I’ve had with Rhino is that it’s block system is surprisingly bad to work with. It’s surprising because Rhino is awesome to work with, but editing blocks/nested blocks in large models is almost impossible. For architectural modeling, block/group/component/etc editing and management is probably the most common way of managing complexity.
However, grasshopper is so powerful that it makes the blocks issue almost a non-issue. Algorithmic/Computational modeling is an incredible way to work. Since I’m new to this though, I thought I’d ask here. Thanks for considering.
