Rhino/Grasshopper Connection crashing

rick hoag

Rhino: 7; 7.36.23346.16351

Grasshopper: 12/12/24 16:35, Build 1.0.0007

ArchiCAD 26: Build 6014 [Installer 4023] 


I'm currently unable to use Grasshopper and ArchiCAD without ArchiCAD suddenly crashing. I've just been trying to put a simple cube into ArchiCAD and it just crashes as soon at I link the grasshopper connection with ArchiCAD. I also tried to update the installer to an earlier version but Grasshopper didn't recognize the ArchiCAD scripts with any higher of an installer. 


I'm also unable to use hotlinks to link the desire object I want into ArchiCAD, once I link the object or use a .gsm. Only a 1/3 of the object shows up. I've attached photos below of what it looks like when I put the object into ArchiCAD vs what it looks in rhino.

This looks like a complex geometry. Try the following:

Explode the geometry (especially Bocks if they exist). Create a mesh from the Brep with the "Mesh Brep" Node.

Bring that to Archicad with the "Morph Solid" Node. It is easier for Archicad to import.
