If you want to write plug-ins for Rhino WIP, this is your category.

Warning: The Rhino SDK Version number changes with every release (weekly). Plug-ins built with this SDK will only load in a Rhino with exactly the same version number. It will be almost impossible for you to release plug-ins for customers to use.

Please ask any questions about Rhino WIP Plug-in development in this category.

The Rhino WIP SDK works with the (free) Visual Studio Community 2015 edition. When installing this version of Visual Studio, make sure to perform a custom installation and select all Visual C++ components.
