The Grasshopper plugin is at the core of the Compute experience. The plugin lets you setup the case, upload it to Compute, download and visualize the results in Grasshopper again.

Installation

We provide the option to install the Procedural Grasshopper plugin through the YAK package manager. When you open one of our demos you will be prompted to install the plugin. That's how easy it is!

Update with YAK

You can update your version by writing TestPackageManager in the Rhino console and selecting the Installed tab and clicking on Update on ComputeGH.

  1. Write TestPackageManager in the Rhino console.
  2. Select the Installed tab.
  3. Click on ProceduralCS.
  4. Click Update.
