Python goes Outside the Box

Cloud pythonRhino.Python is our newest scripting language in Rhino 5 Beta. A great feature of Python is the ability to expand its capabilities by loading advanced modules. A couple great examples of this are Steve Baer’s new articles on rhino.Python.

Use Rhino.Python to tap into web services and real-time information from around the world directly within Rhino. In Steve’s Outside the Box series, he shows how to call into popular web APIs (REST/SOAP) and data structures (JSON/WSDL).

In another article, Steve creates multithreaded plugins. Multi-threading can improve performance and user interaction within computationally heavy plugins.

Rhino.Python is available in both Grasshopper and Rhino 5 Beta.

To find out more go to rhino.Python.
