This plugin is a set of 200 components. A part of these components were developed in order to help people on the Grasshopper forums (http://grasshopper3d.com and https://discourse.mcneel.com) and the others are Laurent Delrieu personal projects.

You will find tools to:

  • Draw Spirals
  • Make perfect Maze on a mesh
  • Generate single line path useful for 3d printing
  • Wordle (random placement of objects on a 2D object)
  • Mesh Iso Splitting
  • Gilbert Tessellation (2D and 3D)
  • Differents type of reaction
    • Directional Reaction diffusion
    • Belousov-zhabotinsky reaction
    • SnowFlake growth
  • Gradient Flow Tool and Flow along vector Field

If you want a licence, send we an email with the UserName you have on the computer you use. You can have access to this information with the component "Nautilus Licence Information". A level 1 licence is 50 € for 2 years. 

 

Installation :

The ZIP file contains 7 files that must be on the same folder "C:\Users\USerName\AppData\Roaming\Grasshopper\Libraries"

  • LDLIB.dll (don't forget to Unblock if plugin is not working)  => Main library that you can access, with some restrictions if you have not the good licence
  • Nautilus.gha (don't forget to Unblock if plugin is not working)=> Grasshopper library
  • NautilusPublicKey.xml => public KEY, don't modify this file
  • NautilusLicencesUserName.xml  (Not present if you have no licence)
  • Plankton.dll (don't forget to Unblock if plugin is not working)
  • PlanktonGH.dll (don't forget to Unblock if plugin is not working)
  • Clipper2.dll ((don't forget to Unblock if plugin is not working), not yet used)

Please email me if you find any bugs. Make sure to read the credits below. See my Instagram account to look at some possibilities of the Nautilus plugin. Feel free to ask modifications of tools or new tools.
