I found that I could download the newest release of plankton here.
The folder contains Plankton.gha and Plankton.dll, but not PlanktonGH.dll -
I am wondering when the last one is needed and when it is used?
Is it only being used by Kangaroo 1, so isn’t updated anymore?
Regarding MeshMachine, I found the latest source code here,
but not sure where exactly is the newest GHA since it is not in the release tab (and I couldn’t manage to compile what is downloaded from the page).
“PlanktonGh.dll” is just “Plankton.gha” renamed.
Visual Studio 2013 made it difficult to reference non-DLLs into a project (such as MeshMachine), so the two ended up getting distributed. Ideally PlanktonGh.dll wouldn’t exist at all. In the case of MeshMachine, I manually edited remesher.csproj to reference the .gha directly…
To compile MeshMachine, drop Plankton.dll and Plankton.gha in the lib/ folder. The RhinoCommon and Grasshopper references are handled by NuGet. If you’re using VS 2017 then these packages will be restored automatically when you start the build.
hi all @will,and @daniel,
I have the same question that cant load the plantkongh.dll. so how can to fix it.
may be i renamed the plankton.gha to …dll?or just drop gha file into the libs folders.
i am really puzzled .
thanks a lot,
Hi, I tried to install Plankton/Mesh Machine per the instructions above and no luck. I spent some time on it, unblocked files etc. If someone has clear directions and links, I would really appreciate it. I’m running Rhino 6.
Also, where would it show up when installed, Kangaroo or GH mesh or WB?
Hey @connie, have you tried the SimpleMesh and RemeshByColour that @DanielPiker added to Kangaroo2? Make sure you’ve got that latest version of Rhino 6 and you should find them under Kangaroo2 / Mesh. (Kangaroo2 is pre-installed in Rhino 6.)
