very well but at this end crashes regularly with Rhino 6 latest version (SR10)...
Hi chrrev,
  • Could you elaborate on this a little bit?
  • What Operating system? (Win 10? Win 7)
  • Which Part is crashing? ARCHICAD? Rhino? Grasshopper?
  • Are you sure you have the proper versions installed of all the tools? (build 40xx of both the connection tool and ARCHICAD 22)
  • There are some known issues of the connection tool colliding with other add-ons. Could you uninstall any other Grasshopper/Rhino Add-on, reinstall both, and see if it helps?
  • Is it working fine on the same computer with Rhino 5?
Thanks,

I don't know about you but I'm experiencing continuous crashing of Rhino when the AC-GH connection is on.
I've tried to start a new AC document from zero (no template), it worked some minutes but Rhino crashed again !
I was starting to do some interesting things, it's a sorrow...
I have the latest AC22 FR and Rhino 5.14.522.8390, under Windows 10 version 1803.
Hi felcunha,

I am sad to hear that (especially that rhino is the one crashing, that is harder to log/figure out). I have been using it for a while, and it seems to be working fine for me on both windows and macOS.
  • I get that it crashes for you even when you start from an empty template, but maybe there are certain steps that lead to it?
  • Are you sure you have the proper versions installed of all the tools? (build 40xx of both the connection tool and ARCHICAD 22)
  • Can you make some videos of the crashing and send them to me in a private message?
Thanks,

Hello

Firstly, thank you for all your hard work on the ArchiCAD/Rhino/Grasshopper connection. I absolutely love it! I just wanted to note that the wall reference line is still fixed to the centre and there appears to be no way to change this. Any ideas when this option will be added?

Thanks in advance and keep up the hard work!

Hello Jarrod,

This has been a long standing wish. I agree, that this is a must have, we are just having a hard time figuring it out on the software level. I am going to nudge the development a little bit to make progress on this.

Thanks for the patience,

"Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live Connection for ARCHICAD 22 runs with up-to-date ARCHICAD 22 versions only, no such ARCHICAD 22 is found in the selected folder. Please select another ARCHICAD 22 folder."


Hello everyone, I just installed the latest version ARCHICAD 22, I have the same warning, could you tell me how I can install the live connection grasshopper-ARCHICAD ? Thank you!!
Hi,

Well, first you should check that you indeed have the proper version of ARCHICAD installed, and that you downloaded the right Grasshopper Connection installer.
The ARCHICAD version should be build 4023 (build 4005 won't work), and the installer should be build 4027. You can check the ARCHICAD version in the 'Help/About ARCHICAD...' menu, and you can see the version of the connection tool in the installer file's name.

If these all match, then there could be some other error here. In that case, please run the installer again, and then get the install logs, and send them to me in a Private Message. Here's how to get the installer logs (send the contents of the entire folder):
