Rhino + grasshopper on server

Hey everyone,

I posted this question on Grasshopper3d and David Rutten suggested I post over here.

I’m interested on whether it is possible to use on a server. Imagine a command like this.

  1. API endpoint receives numbers for parametric vase
  2. Triggers rhino and grasshopper via Rhinoscript to generate the object, bake it, and save it.
  3. Returns the URL where the new STL is located.

Has anyone else worked on a workflow like this? Ideally this would run on a linux box - but I’m guessing that is a non-starter. Are there better tools for this I don’t know about? Also what are the licensing requirements for this? Thanks!


Jeff, did you make any progress with this? If so, what are your experiences?


Same problem, does Rhino has API for modeling by shell command/script?

Speckle by @idid might be just the thing here.
