The main components in the suite are:
- Bake with attributes
- Reference by user text
- Reference by attributes
- Read user text
- Read attributes
- Have all your input geometry brought in by means of one or multiple worksession files.
- Reference the geometry in Grasshopper based on filters. A data tree will be created with one branch for each property.
- Process the geometry in Grasshopper and bake the new geometry in your clean and empty model.
On top of that EleFront includes as suite of components that allow for baking annotation objects to Rhino. These include:
- Linear Dimensions
- Angular Dimension
- Text dots
All of which can be baked with all attributes mentioned before. Drawing generation for huge projects is now a breeze. With Elefront it is possible to create thousands of drawings within a single session.
The latest release of Elefront now includes a whole new suite of components that deal with Rhino blocks. It is now possible to create blocks, bake blocks, reference blocks and deal with all user defined attributes that we know from the basic suite of Elefront components.
The "Extended Geometry" parameter will allow for selection of blocks in Rhino, as well as other non-geometric items, like text and annotation objects. This suite of components will really take your Rhino BIM productivity to a whole new level.
The "Data Description" parameter will hugely help you organize your definitions, by allowing you to set description which will automatically be updated downstream if you modify the description.
A brief introduction is found on this poster
We have tested this project, but it is the first release and it might contain still bugs. Please use it "as is", it does not come with warranties. We spent a lot of time developing the logic and implementing it, please give credit where credit is due.
- Drag the gha file from your download folder straight onto the canvas. The Elefront tab should now appear in your Grasshopper interface.
