Superimposed GH Viewport directly in Rhino

unhandled

#1

Often bothered by having to float around an extra bulky window for working in Grasshopper and Rhino, causing the entire workflow to feel like looking through a burqa (no religious bashing intended) rather than viewing into my project with eyes wide open, I would very much appreciate it if we’d have the Grasshopper viewport directly in Rhino as a superimposed layer, I believe the advantages should be clear.

Some of you may have seen this already, @DavidRutten any thoughts, can you make us happy, at least in the next major release of Grasshopper 2?

It may be possible to run a GH canvas inside a Rhino viewport without too much extra work, but it’s not going to be running on top of a Rhino viewport with 3D content.

For one how would you distinguish between selection events? If you draw a selection frame, did you mean to select GH components or Rhino objects? What about mouse navigation? Canvas pan or viewport pan?

I personally really hate the visual clutter this superposition yields, but I’ll admit that is just, like, my opinion dude.

one click on the viewport locks the components
one click on a component locks the viewport

supermaximizing viewport ->

• less swiveling/zooming GH components
• more productive, better overview

  • make it a hide-able layer and all are happy.
