RHI installer on Mac OSX

I received a question on food for rhino about clipper:

Doesn’t work on mac, tried double clicking it and a pop up shows that rhino cannot open .rhi files. I’m running rhino 6

I’m distributing clipper as RHI file, and I don’t own any mac to test deployment on mac. I figured RHI files should work universally. Am I missing something or is something work with this user’s installation of rhino 6?

@arendvw Here is our guide on the macOS plugin installer (.macrhi): https://developer.rhino3d.com/guides/rhinocommon/plugin-installers-mac/

(On a Windows machine) I changed the extension to .zip, extracted the contents, renamed the folder to ClipperTools.rhp, then zipped that, then changed the extension to .macrhi, and then dragged that to the Rhino 6 for Mac icon, and I got this:

I then restarted Rhino and I get this:

Now I need to learn Clipper!


Thanks for the resources! I’ll include a release for mac in my workflow.
