ShapeDiver Plugin v1.6

The new version of the ShapeDiver plugin is now available!

One of the new features is the gITF Exporter for Rhino. gITF has become the standard format for displaying geometry online, it loads fast and is widely compatible with online 3D technologies. It is the first gITF exporter for Rhino and it is compatible with version 5, version 6 and fully compatible with your Grasshopper definitions.

Another interesting feature is the GeometryGym Integration. GeometryGyM is a popular plugin between the AEC users for simplifying interoperability between Rhino+Grasshopper and other software packages used in the industry such as Revit and Archicad.

Here is a lightning round of the other updates that we are rolling out with this new plugin:

  • Support for the Dendro plugin: Dendro is a popular plugin for volumetric modeling in Grasshopper. Download the plugin and check out an example model on ShapeDiver.
  • New export formats: the ShapeDiver export components now support one additional geometry format (OBJ) and three additional text-based formats (XML, JSON and of course IFC – see section above).
  • New helper component for extracting mesh UVs: a simple but crucial operation that is not natively available in Grasshopper.
  • Support for polyline JSON data output.
