Hi all,

I have been informed about Rhino.Inside and apparently you can directly use Rhino inside Revit and other products. I was wondering if such tool will be available inside ArchiCAD too?

Best regards,

Apparently, this is in principle restricted to software developed under .Net framework (Archicad is not).

This was the official version. But last weeks, they have implemented rhinoinside under Unreal, wich isn't developed under .Net framework. So there is some hope to see RhinoInside with archicad, but I wouldnt be too enthuasiatic about this.

By the other hand, McNeel is developing other API's that integrate some Rhinocommon functionalities for CPython (also available for Javascript), but is quite limited. But... They also have RhinoCompute, which is a service accessible via Rest API that offer a more complete set of Rhinocommon goodies. which happens to be accesible via CPython...

Let's wait Python for archicad be released and then lets try all this McNeel technology!

EDIT: I just realized that python addon is already available! ... archicad23

Greetings to all!

I am seeing a very fast paced development by McNeel of Rhino.Inside, their tool to run Rhino and Grasshopper inside a third application memory space, mainly Rhino.Inside Revit, and wonder, is the Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connection part of this development, or is it a total different approach developed just by Graphisoft?

Why isn't Mcneel working in this connection?

For those who are not familiar with Rhino.Inside Revit, check the link below. It looks to me it is a more complete solution than the Grasshopper-ARCHICAD connection.

Hmm, that is interesting.
Do you know for a fact that he specifically said that Rhion.Inside ARCHICAD is coming?
Or do you speculate that it is coming based on the #graphisoft and #archicad hashtags present in the LinkedIn post?

Thanks, Leceta. I've merged the new posts into that one.
