I am using C# to make a Rhino and Grasshopper plugins. Using Rhino7.
I have been looking around and it seems like there isn’t a build in way to read a step file into a custom plugin. The only way I can find is to:
- use RunScript to convert the step into a 3dm then use File3DM to read the file,
- use RunScript to import the step file into rhino then find all the new objects with my plugin
- find some 3rd party library that reads step files
Is there another way? I can see that there is a FileStep.Read method, but it is only available in Rhino8. Is there any way to do this in Rhino7 or do I have to start using the beta?
Thanks for the help!
