I’m new to Rhinoceros, I just installed a trial version of Rhinoceros 6.22 on my relatively up to date MacBook Pro (specs below) so that I can attend a introductory course on Grasshopper.
The teacher distributed a file with ‘.gh’ extension and 122 kb size to the students with some components and notes in it.
My colleagues, who have Windows notebooks, are able to open that file in a few seconds and work easily on it, zooming in and out, creating and connecting components, sliding sliders etc.
On my Mac, the file took about 2 minutes 50 seconds just to open.
Every simple operation, such as zooming in and out, gives me the beach ball…
And this is a very simple file, just for learning purposes, with no complicate calculations or elaborate geometry.
I was warned that Rhino/Grasshopper would have lower performance on Mac than on Windows, but this is close to unusable.
Is there something wrong with my computer or my installation, or is it the expected behavior for Grasshopper on a Mac?
Is there something I could do to improve its speed?
