pOd---------Release

I have published my plugin on Food4Rhino before. But I got a malicious report and then it was taken off shelves.

pOd is the a plugin which I made and used a lot in my work. I just share it from now on. It’s free and no limits.

The names of components and parameters are in English, but all the descriptions are in Chinese. I will not take time to make a full English or Chinese version.

There are 3 buttons on the top of Canvas: 犀牛窗口会生成三个按钮

Button 1. Generate a topmost rhino viewport with size 500x500. 生成一个500x500的犀牛置顶视口。

Button 2. Hold on Ctrl key, and use the left mouse button to draw a selection box to remove some wires in grasshopper. 可以按住Ctrl,左键框选删除运算器连线。

Button 3. You can just click the left mouse button to draw the wire. Do not need to hold on it. And you can move the canvas by hold on the right mouse button. 单击连线模式,不用按住左键连线,一般当运算器间距较远时可以开启此功能。

If it was justifiably removed from F4R then probably you shouldn’t post it here as it is also run by McNeel. If you feel it was removed for no good reason you should probably reach out to the McNeel team.

Thanks, Michael. I already contacted to McNeel. But I did’t get any compelling evidence why it should be removed. I don’t know how to prove my innocence now, it’s harder than tip-off.

hi @Levin thanks for useful plugin
this component have errors yet

You can find this below link of the pOd_CellsFromCurves component. It only can be used for planar curves.

And you can download the attached example files from this page.

thank you

If you can’t publish your great plugin in food4rhino, where can we get new pob updates?
For example, here?

The plugin I published here is unlimited. You can use it forever. But also I will still update it in my QQ group frequently.

Excellent . What is?link address QQ group site frequently

QQ is not a website, it’s a chat app in China, like whatsapp & MSN. I’m sorry I can not explain to you how to get it.

The plugin gets a malicious refusal from Food4Rhino and you install it on your machine? Even if @Levin is not providing malware on purpose or it might only be a false alarm, its a serious security risk at this point. I would advise @Levin to fix this and not to provide it on other channels. 3rd party libraries or obfuscation software can inject malware as well.

when uploading this to a online virus scanner I get this message:
WARNING! FILE MAY BE INFECTED!
Clamav
pOd_2020.06.21.1.gha: Win.Dropper.Msilperseus-7772566-0 FOUND

@Levin hope you can get this sorted, because it looks like a great plugin

Simple! Publish the source code :wink:

Your English seems good though. If you are going to release something why cut out the majority of the user base? Seems you put so much into it already might as well have just made it in English (especially if the goal is F4R deployment).

It’s probably due to the obfuscation.

Hi all,

Just after this plugin was published on food4Rhino we were contacted by 2 companies stating that Pod was infringing some copyrights and copying code from Facadehub, Parastaad, SEG and ShapeMap.
A court session is programmed by one of the companies. W
We followed the precautionary principle and unpublished Pod until this get clearer.

Best regards,

@cecile how about the virus/malware I found in that .gha?, do you check for this as well when things are uploaded to f4r?

Some indeed inject malware, some other obfuscator build protection in which causes a false alarm.
I would pick renaming and breaking a decompiler (such as ILSpy) from loading it. This shouldn’t trigger false alarm (such as e.g. packing would). But if it was obfuscated, how could McNeel detect copyright issues then? Are you guys decompiling as well?

@Gijs We scan every file published on food4Rhino and if a malware/virus is detected, file is rejected. I just scanned the one Levin published some days ago on food4Rhino with VirusTotal and it was not infected

It’s not that obfuscated. But I’m ~99% sure it has undergone some sort of
