Open existing file with Rhino Compute

Is it possible to open an existing file with Rhino Compute (C#) and assign it to a Rhino.FileIO.File3dm class?


Hi @ismael.sanzgo,

Rhino.Compute is documentless. That is, you’ll want to open 3dm documents using Rhino3dm (using Python, JavaScript, or .NET). When you need functionality not included in Rhino3dm, then you’ll make calls to a Compute server.

Does this help?

You can directly open files with Rhino.FileIO.File3dm

Rhino.FileIO.File3dm.Read is what I was looking for.
