The releases contain both the Speckle Grasshopper Clients as well as the Speckle User Data Utils (more to come).
Head over to Speckle Grasshopper’s release page.
If you want to grab a specific version, feel free. Nevertheless, it usually best to download the latest version (ie highest release number).
Close Rhino and Grasshopper if you have them running by any chance.
Unzip the downloaded zip and copy and paste the two folders in the Grasshopper components folder:
Make sure that all dll and gha files are not in the root folder but in their own folder called SpeckleSendReceive.
Fire Rhino and Grasshopper up. The Speckle Components should appear in their own tab, called
Speckle. Wow! Smooth sailing so far.
When you will first drag a Speckle Sender or Speckle Receiver component to the canvas, a dialog will ask you to create an account (or use an existing one).
Since I’m assuming you are a new user, let’s go ahead and make a new one:
https://s003.speckle.works/apior, if you deployed your own, your ip/url address.
Click register, and voila! You should be up and running: you can now send data between clients connected to the s003.speckle.works server. Get your friends to join in the fun 😎
