PDM for Rhino

Ok, how about…

PDM…

for Rhino?

Autodesk Vault seems to be a ‘useful’ tool to put it mildly. Fine, we don’t have version control in Rhino, but there should be soon some API (RhinoCompute?) available to read the contents and display our “Rhino product” without opening the entire application? There are large team working in Rhino, which surely would welcome this feature…

You can read and write Rhino 3dm files with our rhino3dm toolkits in C++, .net, python, and javascript. This does not require you to install Rhino on a device to view files. For example, rhino3dm.js is used in the three.js editor and in the sample rview app where you can load a 3dm and view the contents.

Thanks, that sounds like the solution, but I am looking also for a way to expose this to average users with a pretty gui, ideally without building a whole application from scratch, so for exampel I saw a couple of interesting open-source “pipeline tools” like recent Prism, written in python, which might be not too difficult to extend, but to stay DRY I would be even more glad to learn about someone else having tried building such a tool already before (that was mouthful).

Especially as this or other open-source tools like Kitsu are targeted to VFX pipeline, while most architecture (architoct here) are proprietary, clunky and expensive, but maybe it’s my lack of experience with software development. I’m curious to know if building it would be a hefty job.
