RS232 input


#1

Hi,

we want to read out a device, similar to a digitizer, that sends coordinates along with a marker.
This all through a V24/RS232 connection.

When a line comes in, Rhino shall draw a line, a curve, circle, whatever.

Is that possible with grasshopper?

Thanks,

Grasshopper does not have this capability, natively. But there are plenty of .NET serial port libraries to make it possible to wrote a Grasshopper component that will.

You might start here:
