Parametric or Constraint based plugin?


#1

If Bricsys “RHINOworks” is discontinued (losing parametric and constraint-based modeling), is there ANYTHING WORKABLE that replaces it ? Bare Grasshopper is NOT a workable option, and BONGO’s “unique” approach to constraints is well, just as unworkable.

Thanks -

Not Rhino based, but there is a very nice, and simple opensource application called Solve space.
It exports DXF, STP, SVG, and STL.

Maybe the opensource license allows that it can be code into a Rhino plugin ?

No, GPLv3 prevents from integrating it directly as a plug-in. You’ll have to use the export/import mechanism.

So what we’re saying is that there’s no longer a parametric plugin allowing constraints, inside RHINO ?

Kangaroo2 has a lot of constraint capabilities. I am not an expert at it, but others here can probably help.
