Inquiry: MS Access Compatibility with Rhino/Grasshopper

Hey everyone,

I’m Nick, and I’m diving into Grasshopper for a project. Apologies if this is a beginner question.

I’m exploring how Microsoft Access plays with Rhino, especially in Grasshopper. Specifically, can I pull info directly from an MS Access file into Rhino/Grasshopper?

Any tips on tools, plugins, or methods for this? And if there are best practices or things to consider, I’d love to hear about them.

Thanks a bunch for your time and help. Excited to understand how MS Access can team up with Rhino/Grasshopper for my project.

Looking forward to your insights.

MS is very good about access via COM libraries.

Do you have any experience in C# or Python?

Here’s an overview (article looks to have been updated in 2021 even though it makes some comments about 2005 versions of visual studio).

Thanks for your reply! I really appreciate it!

I have some experience with Python. Thanks for the link! This is definitely helpful for me, will need some time to dive deeper into it, but I think I can figure it out! Thanks again!
