eVe | voronax


eVe | voronax

eVe|voronax is a plug-in used for the generation of Voronax structures. It is a specific type of structure obtained when a Voronoi diagram is “relaxed” over a free form surface. Voronax is developed by Milos Dimcic at the Stuttgart University in 2008 as a part of his PhD thesis. If you want to see a nice explanation of what Voronax actually is and why it is great, you should check out our videos. For more information you can also download the entire PhD thesis in the Publications section of our website (web address below) .

The plug-in uses one Command (eve_voronax) - one Dialog - see our manual for detailed instructions. You can download the plug-in also from our website: http://www.programmingarchitecture.com

The plug-in is released under the Creative Commons license. Please give credit where credit is due. If you want to use it for commercial purposes you have to contact us first at eve@programmingarchitecture.com.

The plug-in does not come with an installer - it is a single Rhino plug-in file (.rhp). So just Drag & Drop it or install it from the Tools/Options/Plug-ins.

·         Check out the video that explains what is this all about.

Give us your feedback and have fun with it!

Thank you so much.


Thanks thanks thanks thanks Wonderful plugin

Hi please help!

I downloaded the plugin but I cant get it to rhino. I am using mac and I have rhino5. I dragged the icon into rhino and wouldnt recoginze it. How do I connect the pluggin. Thanks!

Double check that you opened RhinoCeros 64-bit, plug-in does not work in 32-bit version. 

Work great !

thank's a lot.

Awesome plugin, very nice work indeed, thank you all who worked it out.

Nice algorithm.  I'd love to see it in a Grasshopper component with at least polylines for cells and preferably full winged edge info.  You've got a big dialog there but most of it is only because it's in Rhino.  The preview, point generation, geometry extraction and regen button would all be unnecessary in Grasshopper.  You'd be left with three inputs: surface, type and points.  Grasshopper plugins use RhinoCommon so it would probably be easy to port over.  I'm pretty sure that the elimination of all the dialog and point generation, etc., etc. would mean that the Grasshopper component would be way easier to write than your Rhino plugin.

Very cool plug-in.


Hi, I'm a bit of a novice to Rhino and this tool, but am having great fun exploring the various capabilities of it all.  Could somebody aid me as to how to create a form that runs allong the Voronax once created.  I have my wire/polyline grid from the plug in, but how do I give the curves a mass.  I am looking to 3d print it the final form/mesh.


Thanks in advance!

Hi, the new version of Voronax plug-in will have cell recognition, automatic grid creation, etc...but I just can`t find time to wrap it up, although it is all basically programmed...hopefully soon... Until then I am sure that Exoskeleton and  Gulio`s Weaverbird can help you



P.S. send the final results to info@programmingarchitecture.com, I would really like to see them.



Well.. Nice presentation :D

how do you use this is their any tutorials that take me step by step

what is a holed surface?

In the zip file is a pdf that should definitely get you started.


where can I find voronax for 32 bits?? 

My rhino crash everytime I try to select the target surface. What can I do? Excelent plug-in anyway.Version 5 SR7 64-bit.

big surface - crash :(

small surface - ok :)

Try to reduce the surface.
