Plugin Updates

We have released multiple versions of the Compute Grasshopper plugin with various improvements and fixes.

  • Pressure Coefficient component has been added for working with facade pressures
  • The LoadProbeResult component have been updated, so now it takes in a MeshPath and not a mesh.

The latest version of the plugin is 2021.9.0
You can update through Food4Rhino or use the PackageManager in Rhino 7, or TestPackageManager in Rhino 6
