Push-button developable lofting

Major improvements to GUI and speed, check the video and give it a try yourself.

"For many years we've been creating developable surfaces ourselves, just because there was no plug-in available which fulfilled our needs. After trying EvoluteTools D.LOFT we were happily surprised. With EvoluteTools D.LOFT it's possible to easily create developable surfaces within controlled tolerances. This is the first developable surface plug-in which does what it promises." - Jan-Marten Rottiné, owner Waterline-Design & Marlon Weijers, owner Triple-Marine.

Developable surfaces are extremely important to modelling in various fields like marine design, architecture, product design, and art works. They help reduce manufacturing costs and tooling, yet no other software allowed designers to use them in a straightforward way with a high degree of precision and control. Things changed! EvoluteTools D.LOFT enables users to create developable surfaces between arbitrary 3d curves with a push of a button, hassle free.

Dear All,

please post your questions on our new forum component:


The comment section on Food4Rhino has limited functionality and it is hard to navigate for users in order to find similar problems. The new forum has a better search option in order to avoid double posting and to be able to get help quicker.

Thank you for your understanding.


I am trying to use the D.Loft grasshopper plugin to create lofted surfaces between two curves. However, the grasshopper component has a runtime error saying :


"Solution exception:Could not load file or assembly 'EvoluteRhinoCommon, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."


I am not sure if this is because I did something wrong or installed either the grasshopper component or the rhino plugin incorrectly. Could you please help me figure out what is wrong/missing?
