Lately started using Rhino inside.
So far quite positive.
However I noticed a thing:
The ‘Revit.inside’ plugin is ‘only’ present in Grasshopper when openend from within Revit (I do understand the reason behind).
Unfortunately this has also an unwanted side effect:
When a GH file is opened which hold ‘Revit.inside components’ you get an ‘Unrecognized Object’ error message (when loading the GH file simply from Rhino (not from Revit)).
This means, if you have a GH file which does multiple things (not only transferring data between Revit-GH) every time you open the script you get the ‘anoying’ message shown below.
Is there an option to avoid/ommit this messege?
Depending on what you are doing the Data Input / Output would be way around this limitation.
Non-Rhino.Inside.Revit aspects could be broken out and solved remotely.
Thanks for your reply!
Its a bit of a workaround but ok
Must admit I didnt know the component before!
Just out of curiousity, what is the difference of the hops component?
Data Output/Input is a file being read, Hops creates a headless Rhino server that solves your Grasshopper script.
One more question regarding the Data Output component.
Would it be possible to add the file ‘directory’ as ‘input’, instead of manually right click and having to select a file?
This way it would become possible defene/select a file location more generic.
Agreed, there are two similar Feature Requests on the books already.
