Food4Rhino News - apps for Rhino and Grasshopper

With more than 100 apps available and 35,000 visits (18,000 downloads) in the last month, food4Rhino is the first Rhino plug-in and Grasshopper add-on site on the web. 

New and featured apps

For Rhino:

RhinoRing is a new Rhino plug-in by Cadwax that supports jewelers and jewelry designers in their day-to-day work. It improves the workflow with custom windows and menus.
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.
Bubble for Rhino is a free tool from Asuni CAD that displays a tooltip with information of any object in the document.
MeshPaint3D  is a free Rhino plug-in allowing intuitive painting, as is performed with pixel images, but on multi-resolution mesh geometries. Painting can be done based on vertices or faces within a single mesh.
BrickDesign enables the controlled design and manipulation of a large amount of discrete elements.  The plug-in provides a parametric design environment, which allows for a fast build-up of brick façade geometries.
Rhino Open Projects is a collection of tools for biomedical (including dental), veterinary sciences, reverse engineering, rapid prototyping, cultural heritage, the geometric products specification, the naval field, ophthalmic optics and others. 
BoltGen is a plug-in to create most English or metric screws and bolts.  
Lands Design is a landscaping plug-in to design gardens and green spaces. Lands is ideal for landscape architects, urban planners, town council technicians, constructors, designers and draftsmen, environment departments, nurserymen, gardeners, etc. 
eVe|sun is a plug-in used for shadow analysis with a slightly different approach. The plug-in enables you to set the sun position for any time interval and calculate shadows that multiple points|curves|surfaces throw on surfaces. 
Smart3d KONG plug-in encrypter: Protect your intellectual property.
For Grasshopper:

VisualARQ Grasshopper Components is an add-on for Grasshopper which allows to create and work with VisualARQ architectural objects inside Grasshopper.
Heliotrope is a Grasshopper plug-in for manipulating solar geometry. The tool calculates solar position vectors at specific dates and times and provides a variety of components for manipulating those dates and times parametrically.
  Hummingbird is a set of Grasshopper components that facilitate the creation of Revit native geometry.
  FabTools allows you to handle a lot of tasks when working for production.
  Kangaroo is a Live Physics engine for interactive simulation, optimization and form-finding directly within Grasshopper.
  GhExcel is a plug-in for Grasshopper to exchange data with Excel. Multiple sheets are supported with ZUI (Zoomable User Interface).
  karamba is an interactive, parametric finite element program. It lets you analyze the response of 3-dimensional beam and shell structures under arbitrary loads.
  KUKA|prc enables you to program industrial robots directly out of the parametric modeling environment, including a full kinematic simulation of the robot.
  Godzilla: Simple and intuitive robotic simulation
 HAL is a Grasshopper plug-in for industrial robots programming. With its large library (126 components), HAL allows designers to simulate, program and control complex multi-robots setups in real time.
