Grasshopper doesn't display in Rhino

I just found that rhino 5 doesn’t show any object whenever I put my definitions in grasshopper.
I can open it in Rhino, but when I do sth there is nothing show in Rhino. But if I press “bake”, the object still can appear in rhino.

I really need help.

See if your Viewport is set to Wireframe in Rhino. If it is set to Rendered it won’t display any geometry.

It’s set to Wireframe but nothing happens

What’s that non-standard yellow icon on your toolbar? You have lots of plugins installed, any of them add any other uncommon functionality to standard GH?

That yellow icon is Brick Box plugin

it was working so much fine before with all these plugins installed , but today I opened it and found this problem out of nowhere

Hi - it looks like you tried to attach an image to your post - that didn’t come through.
Please upload a gh file and the result of the Rhino SystemInfo command.

Not at my computer atm, but I faced this a lot with the latest SR. Will upload info as soon as I can.
But for example, preview works fine. I place a standard component. Preview disappears. I delete it and everything works fine again. Even when placing the same component again, it doesn’t happen again.
Couldn’t replicate it, just appears randomly over time with random components.

Usually when I have this problem it’s because I’m looking at grasshopper and rhino from two separate sessions. :rofl:


I know this, but wasn’t that case :smiley:

Hi, Wim.

Note that this is a very old GPU with an old driver and with a very old OpenGL version. A card that supports OpenGL 4.1 is recommended, I think the minimum is OpenGL 3.3.

Hello Nathan.

Thanks for attention.

It was what I did not want. Have to replace the video card … :frowning:
