Rhino User Webinar: Rhino.Inside.TopSolid


Rhino User Webinar
8 February 2024 at 3:00 pm (CET)

Rhino.Inside.TopSolid is an open-source plugin based on the Rhino.Inside Technology. It allows Rhino and Grasshopper to run inside CAD-CAM TopSolid. In this webinar, Ahmed Wael Ismail, its developer and primary maintainer, will go through its development and main functionalities before illustrating with practical use cases and plugin applications. The Rhino.Inside.TopSolid plugin is part of a larger investigation of file-less open methods for exchanging data using TopSolid as a software tool. Another application developed was the Speckle.TopSolid connector. TopSolid is known for its precise modeling capabilities based on the Parasolid Geometry Kernel and its integrated PDM. It enables feature-based parametric modeling in a part/assembly logic commonly used in mechanical engineering. It also allows an integrated workflow from design to fabrication.
