'Run Manually' / 'Temporarily Pause Execution' button in Grasshopper?

Hi all,

Is there a way in Grasshopper to pause the execution of the graph while I do some changes? I am dealing with a huge amount of data & everytime I change a minor part, it executes right away and freezes for a few seconds.

I came from Dynamo - Revit workflow & got used to this function, so I am not sure what would be the equivalent of this in Grasshopper.
Please help!

Hi @archjahzzy,

Yes, it’s called “Disable Solver” or “Lock Solver” and can be found in the right-click menu, the radial menu, as well as the menu bar under “Solution” (at least on macOS).

You can also put Data Dams in front of particularly expensive calculations, delaying their solutions until you press the button.


Thanks @diff-arch!
