LunchBox is a plug-in for Grasshopper for exploring mathematical shapes, paneling, structures, and workflow.  The plug-in includes tools for:

The latest release of LunchBox is built against Grasshopper 0.90076 and Rhino 5.0 (I am no longer testing with Rhino 4.0)

  • Data:  Components for dataset management, XML, and JSON formats
  • Generate: Components for cool generative geometry.
  • Math:  Create parametric surfaces and forms such as the Mobius, Klein, or 3D Supershape 
  • Panels:  Create paneling systems such as quad grids, diamonds, or triangles.
  • Structure:  Create wire structures such as diagrids or space trusses.
  • Utility:  Rationalize spline curves and reverse surfaces.
  • Workflow: Read and write Excel files, layer management, and automate baking and saving.

I hope the tool is as helpful to you as it is to me in the design process!

To install:

  • The new installer uses a 'ClickOnce' deployment method.
