Step 1: Installation

Download the latest rhino installer.

Double click it and restart rhino.

Step 2: Create Your First Account

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:


  • Server Url: use or, if you deployed your own, your ip/url address.
  • Email: your email address.
  • Password: your password.
  • Confirm: confirm your password.

Click register, and voila! You should be up and running: you can now send data between clients connected to the server. Get your friends to join in the fun 😎
