Grasshopper - ARCHICAD 21 Live Connection
Update build 5011
The downloaded installer will install two extensions at once: an ARCHICAD Add-on and a Grasshopper plug-in. These two will communicate creating the connection between the two design software. For reporting errors or sending feedback, please use our ARCHICAD-Rhinoceros-Grasshopper Connection Beta site.
Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live Connection will not update automatically with an ARCHICAD update.
