Plug Ins Newbie

Hi Forum,

New to Rhino so trying to pcik things up quickly. Where do i install Plug Ins? Ive tried one where ive downloaded it, put it somewhere local, then open Options/Plug Ins and clicked the Install button in the dialog to go find the Rhino App file, but Rhino says ‘Initialization Failed’.

I’m on an evaluation copy, does this matter?

An evaluation copy will not load plug-ins after 25 saves (see
So, if you can still save it should still load plugins.

Also make sure that the plug-in is designed for either 32 bit or 64 bit Rhino, whichever version you’re running…


thank you.

it seems different plug ins load different ways, some appear in top bar, others need to be loaded in…

getting there slowly
