Compas in rhino8

interested to know how if I can run compas geometry in rhino8beta?
I tried to run a simple Mesh.from_points script in the rhino8 grasshopper script editor and I get an error while importing MeshArtist. (image below: left rhino8 beta right rhino7)

is this because the artist wrapper is for ironpython?


yes indeed. currently, compas_rhino and compas_ghpython only take the IronPython-based script interpreter into account. we are looking into supporting both use cases.

will keep you posted…

btw, currently the following combinations work smoothly:

  • R8 ScriptEditor CPython + Scene
  • R8 ScriptEditor IronPython + Scene
  • R8 GH IronPython component + Scene
  • R8 GH CPython component + geometry conversions (using the scene doesn’t work here, yet)

yes this works for me as well

how are you able to run it in ScriptEditor without adding the package requirements on top? like below, is there a better way to make rhino import compas?

#r: compas
