One of the things in Rhino that is a bit tedious to access is the history of commands, because you have to remember know which command created a specific surface (Fillet, Sweep, MatchSrf, BlendSrf, etc.). In Alias there is a tool called “Query edit” which highlights all surfaces with history. By picking any particular surface, it pops up the options dialog of the tool that created that particular surface. This is a demonstration with a swept & lofted surface picked with the Query edit tool: (https://vimeo.com/441298627) I would like to see a similar tool in Rhino, rather than going into a specific command and hit “edit”, we could have a tool that allows you to edit any history based operations.
Then there’s the new history visualiser in Alias https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QM5LTFBr8AE which captures history in a node based editor. Consider how powerful this could be in Rhino: the conceptual design could be modelled the usual way, while doing so, Rhino writes Grasshopper nodes in the background for curves, surfaces, etc. Once the conceptual design modelling is finished, there would already be a grasshopper script which can be tweaked with minimal effort to iterate on the design. Rather than inputting curves (like Alias’ History Visualiser), point inputs with XYZ coordinates could (optionally) be fed into the curve nodes. So I would really like to see Rhino and Grasshopper function in both directions, rather than Grasshoppper driving Rhino only.
