horsterReference tools make it easy to reference objects by type, layer and other attributes from Rhino to Grasshopper.

for now it consists of five components:

  • Reference by layer - gets the Guids of objects that are on specified layer.
  • Reference by type - gets the Guids of object of specified type.
  • Reference by attributes - allows the user to filter the objects in Rhino document depending on their name, type, layer and color
  • Read text objects - references all dots and annotation from Rhino document into Grasshopper. Returns the origin points and the strings.
  • *NEW*  Read attributes - gets the name, layer, color, material and type from the objects ID.

horster tools were developed as part of BAD.Research program. this is the first release of the tool: i'll be greatful for any feedback and suggestions.

to install:

  • in Grasshopper, choose File > Special Folders > Components folder. save the gha file there.
  • right-click the file > Properties > make sure there is no "blocked" text
  • restart Rhino and Grasshopper
  • *NEW* if you are downloading version 0.2 and you have previous version (it was called referenceEasy.gha) please remove it from your Components folder before installing - I messed something with Guid/Name relation.

i recommend starting with horsterReference example files.
