Hi everyone,

Few days ago started using new version of Live Connection 2.0 and faced a problem: in previous version I draw a Curve and connected it to input "Curve" to create a slab using Grasshopper node . And it worked.

But in new version there is a "Polygon" input, not "Curve". When I create a Curve in Rhino and connect it, a problem appears - "Invalid Polygon value. Outline Curve is self-intersecting". I tried many types of Curves, but Node didn`t accept them. How simple rectangle can be self-intersecting? Then I tried to create a polygon in Rhino and connect it to input. Node said that my polygon was not in horizontal plane. But IT WAS. I tried some types of polygons in horizontal and vertical plane, but it didn`t work. It is very strange, because I can create any other elements without problems.

Has anyone run into the same problem?

Goodbye RhinoWIP for Rhino 5 for Mac
Have you tried with plain Rhino for Mac, WIP-version seems to be old already? I believe RhinoWIP should have warned you about it.

Rhino (not WIP) version for MAC doesn't have Grasshopper in it. I have the latest version of RhinoWIP and it works pretty well with Live Connection 2.0 plugin. All nodes are working. Node "Slab" also working, but I can't understand what type of data needs input "Polygon". It doesn't accept any type of curves and polygons. Maybe it needs a combination of polygon and plane?

Sorry, I might not be helping with your actual problem, but Grasshopper (and paneling tools too) are in there with the newest Mac Rhino (in regular too, not WIP only).

Grashopper works now with "Grasshopper" command, not "ExplicitHistory" like it did in earlier (WIP) versions.
