[Important] Version 0.3 had contained a terrible bug.
Use 0.31 instead of 0.3.
You can find tutorial videos here.
This is the third release of Ricecooker which enables computation of shapes in equilibrium.
New featrures are as follows:
- Timer is now self-contained.
- Keyboard control is supported (Hit Ctrl-key to show information window, hit G-key to start computation)
- Bake is supported. From "Mainloop" component you can bake whole model to the document. From each component, you can bake each part of the model. (Note that some components do not implement bake function so far.)
This plugin might work with Rhino 5, Windows7, 8 and 8.1, either in 32bit or 64 bit environment. I think it does not work with Rhino 4 but I am not sure. Reports are always welcome.Notes for the latest version (0.3)
(Updated on March 13th,2014)
1. Install Sho2.1 (used for computing least squares solution)
I recommended to download "Sho 2.1 on IronPython 2.6".
However, this link is no longer active.
I tested "Sho 2.1 on IronPython 2.7" and it does work.
IronPython2.7 is not nessesary for the Ricecooker.
Just download "Sho 2.1 on IronPython 2.7", install it, and restart your computer.
2. Copy .gha and .dll
Put Ricecooker.gha and FigureUI2.dll in the "Component folder".
This is found by following Grasshopper->File->Special Folders->Components folder
Good luck and enjoy!
