Parametric Worflow - Archicad/Python/Hops/Grasshopper

Trying to make a custom door generator in Grasshopper that will report back to Archicad the 3d model and plan views required for Library Part Maker.

 

The idea is the Archicad user will run a python script through the Python Palette and input a few ints (door height, width, wall thickness). Those get sent over togH through the HOPS component (python integration with gH). Grasshopper would then send the parts over to Archicad. This would avoid users having to deal with gH (could even be running in a compute server).

 

I cant get user inputs through the python palette though. Is this possible?

Theoretically you could get user input by making a small GUI with Python, e.g. with tkinter.

Haven't tried it, tho.
