RhinoCommon is the Rhino API that is accessible through scripting languages such as Python. In this video, look at how to access the RhinoCommon library and how it differs from the Rhinoscriptsyntax library.
- [Instructor] RhinoCommon is another library…which contains all the classes, structures and functions…needed to work with Rhino.…The advantage of using the RhinoCommon library…is it gives us much more access…to all the areas of Rhino that may not be accessible…through the RhinoScriptSyntax library.…In fact the RhinoScriptSyntax library operates…by running actions using the RhinoCommon library.…The cost of using the RhinoCommon library is…it's a little bit more complex.…Instead of using purely functions…we can access classes and structures to create objects…such as points, boxes, and spheres.…
Once we have created these objects…we then get an object in return…with it's own attributes and methods.…Using these objects can be harder…but the reward is greater as it provides more functionality.…So let's have a look at…how we can view the contents of the RhinoCommon library…and create objects using classes and structures,…using .notation in Python.…You can see that I've got a new Grasshopper open file…on the right and Rhino open on the left.…
