Hey there Rhino & Python experts!
Im pretty new to rhino and grasshopper, but hopefully you can help me with a pointer into the right direction. If this question has already been answered here in a discussion and I have overlooked it, I would love a link to that as well.
My question is the following:
I have an existing GH file that has some parameters/inputs (mostly int-numbers) and generates a geometry based on them. That works fine and I am super happy with it.
Because its really important that everything goes smoothly, I want to automate the generation of a lot of combinations of those inputs and get the corresponding STL file to it, in order to perform some quality checks and then use it as part of another production pipeline.
So in short I want to provide input parameters and generate the STL file from within a python script, in order to use the STL in my pipeline afterwards.
I guessed that this is possible, but im a bit lost when it comes to where to start really.
Can you give me some context on if this is possible and where I might start looking?
Do I need a compute server for this? - Is there a python package that I can use to load and execute a GH file? Can I use Rhino/Grasshopper from the command line to produce the STL?
