This is a plugin presentation. Updated to v1.3.0 | 16/05/21
Draw the name (or nickname) of Grasshopper objects with Draw Icons mode on. It also enriches the capsules when you zoom in to understand the component and visualise its data at a quick glance.
The advantage with the alternatives (and the reason for it) is that this is a purely graphic plugin, you don’t need any component to use it, it is modified via toolbar, and it doesn’t create any object inside the canvas either, it only affects the canvas visually. Besides, you look much more stunning with them.
- Download the last version of Sunglasses.gha from Food4Rhino.
- Make sure Sunglasses.gha is unlocked, right click > Properties > Unlock (if visible).
- Copy and paste it in the Grasshopper Libraries folder, usually: C:\Users\ < YourUser> \AppData\Roaming\Grasshopper\Libraries.
- Restart Rhinoceros and Grasshopper.
This plugin does not contain any components. Access the user settings from Grasshopper Toolbar > Display > Sunglasses to enable or disable, draw the nickname instead of name, change the size of the font and include or exclude objects to display the name.
These user settings are stored in grasshopper_kernel.xml file in the Grasshopper folder, with the prefix “Sunglasses”. But I don’t know why you should use this.
