I’ve been experimenting with rhino inside lately and have been very impressed so far. Looks promising and got me thinking that RiR had the potential to overtake Dynamo as the dominant scripting interface for Revit. For a number of reasons:
- Dynamo is still quite buggy and slow in comparison to Grasshopper
- Grasshopper has a significantly larger community, hence larger ecosystem of plug-ins to draw from
- More user friendly and beautiful interface
However, RiR Grasshopper currently seems to be lacking the data manipulation capabilities of Dynamo, which makes sense considering geometry is what Rhino/Grasshopper is good for vs BIM in Revit.
I can easily see this being overcome with some additional nodes by Mcneel in the final release or custom plug ins written by others. It isn’t really as difficult to implement compared to plug ins like Kangaroo, Galapagos, Wallacei etc. which Dynamo is quite far away from.
Either way, smart move by Mcneel and looking forward to seeing it develop further.
Very interested in hearing the communities thoughts on the topic.
