I’ve been working on an updated version of RhinoPolyhedra, for a while, with a couple of goals in mind:
- Make it work with Rhino 6 for Mac.
- Make it possible to support Grasshopper.
- Consolidate some of the other plug-in I have on Food4Rhino.
Here is the first Work-In-Progress release:
RhinoPolyhedra_6.0.6785.20281.rhi (1.1 MB)
Note, if you already have RhinoPolyheda installed, you might need to remove it before installing the WIP.
- The code has been completely re-written in C# and using RhinoCommon and Eto. This allows the plug-in to run on Rhino 6 for Mac (when it is available).
Polyhedron command creates ~100 new shapes.
Polyhedron command can now output meshes (ngons) or curves.
Here is a list of the plug-in commands:
- MeshIcoSphere - Creates a mesh ico-sphere (more)
- MeshQuadSphere - Creates a mesh quad sphere (new!)
- PolarZonohedron - Creates a Polar Zonohedron
- Polyhedron - Creates a polyhedron from a library of 543 (current) shapes.
- QuickHull - Creates a 3D convex hull from selected points (more)
- Waterman - Creates a Waterman Polyhedron (more)
Let me know what you think.
Thank you, Dale.
IE 11 choked on the first 2 links, Re Security Certificate. I had to add www to each link respectively. i.e., https://www.food4rhino.com/app/rhinopolyhedra.
What is best way to remove rhinopolyhedra6000.rhi; should I just disable it?
That would probably work. You can also just rename this folder:
%APPDATA%\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-ins\Rhino Polyhedra (666ae572-a6c5-44b5-b668-6b503d56c199)
Thank you kind sir!
It seems to be flawless. QuickHull is very usefull. I would like to copy names of these polyhedra from the Polyhedron plugin window.
@dale did you get the scutoid in there?
@fraguada - yeah I missed that one…
Great plug-in, thanks.
Will this be OOTB with any near future upcoming release?
@fraguada, @BrianJ, not really a polyhedron, but these should be packable.
scutoid_pair.3dm (222.1 KB)
How do you get this kind of viewport shading?
Looks like Arctic one with colors.
I just tweaked the standard Rendered display mode so curves always drawing black and a tad bit thicker.
Dale, this is amazing, thank you!
