Command Macros and Scripting Command Macros and Scripting All Rhino commands can be used in command macros. Command macros can be run by typing the command at the command prompt, from toolbar buttons, shortcut keys, command aliases, from the ReadCommandFile command, or using the Paste command into Rhino's command stream. Writing Command Macros Special characters Examples Draw a circle This macro creates a circle centered at 5,5 with a radius of 10: ! Deselect objects and start the Move command This macro starts the Move command, but makes sure no objects are selected before asking you to select objects to move: ! Create a curve through points This macro creates a set of three points, selects them all, and fits a polyline through the points: ! How this script works: Bypass a dialog box ! Select a curve, then run this macro. To try these scripts Select the macro right from this Help topic. Special scripting commands Note: If you do not know what to type in a macro, run the hyphenated version of the command. MacroEditor Steps Notes !

Main Page - Scripting Scripting Essentials Getting Started with Scripting Getting started with scripting can be a daunting task for numerous reasons: not knowing exactly where and how best to start, the mountains of documentation available, etc., so below’s an abbreviated approach that should help. Concentrate first on creating simple scripts using the Documentation and Steps to Developing Scripts. The scripting tool referred to here is RhinoScript accompanying Rhino, the 3D modeling software. Hello World! 1) Tools menu: RhinoScript > Edit … (alternatively, Command line: _EditScript) or use a simple text editor, like Windows Notepad, to create and edit your script; save with the .rvb file extension (in this case, save as HelloWorld.rvb) Sub HelloWorld Rhino.MessageBox (“Hello World!”) 2) Tools menu: RhinoScript > Load … (alternatively, Command line: _LoadScript) Add … (browse to where you saved HelloWorld.rvb and Open it) Load … (select HelloWorld from the list of scripts and press Load) Facilitating Script Development / ToolBars

(Note : Put U, V & W sections in different layers & do 1 direction at a time). You can do two of the tree directions each time. U = 30 numbers 9. 10. 11. Using Surface from Planar Curves to create surface. 12. Another way is using RhinoScript will be as follows : On the top view window, draw lines or grids across the surface you selected. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21.

Rhino I’m excited to announce that I will be doing a workshop in interactive parametric modelling with Studio Mode and MakerBot in New York, Feb 19-20 (with an optional extra day on Feb 21). We will be using Processing along with CAD tools like Rhino3D to produce parametric models to output 3D models for digital fabrication. MakerBot Industries have graciously offered to lend us some MakerBot Thing-o-matics to produce models from the workshop. The full announcement follows below, please visit Studio Mode’s announcement for enrollment and more details. Continued… 3D printing, architecture, digital-fabrication, makerbot, parametric-design, processing.org, studio mode, Workshops Exciting news: Studio Mode (aka Ronnie Parsons and Gil Akos) and I are working on plans for a parametric design workshop using Processing and Rhino/Grasshopper in New York later this year. Exact dates and format of the workshop are to be determined, but we’re hoping for early December. Code: randCube.rvb Workshop contents
