Cheers. XML in C# is actually very easy, turns out. Will take a crack at it.

First results. Very rough exporting, works like an export script, except you press the render button. No materials or lighting control yet, but it looks like exporting geometry finally works.

Are you writing in Python, Tom?

Written in C# with the render plugin API... I think Python only works as a script? The idea was to eventually be able to use the Rhino frame buffer + material editor + render settings within Rhino, more integrated than just running a script. It spits out an .rhp and .dll file, I wonder if Rhino for Mac can use .rhp files to install plugins?

There is also a C++ API that I haven't gotten to, as well as the Indigo SDK... I'm still getting my head around everything so hopefully something can be figured out that works on Mac as well...

I don't know anything about scripting but... from what I've understood, Rhino beta for Mac doesn't support 3rd party plugins, other than those written in python, which is a cross-platform language.

From what I've understood, the UI of Blender is written in Python, so it could be possible. I might be wrong though, and of course you have to do what you feel most comfortable with - it's great to see someone digging into this anyhow. Keep it up mate!

Hello everyone,

Any news on the porting to rhino front? The upcomming gpu rendering mode had me excited again about a possible usage of indigo

Thanks in advance

Hello team,Just wondering why haven't you invested a bit on building a nice rhino plugin since Indigo is so into that market segment?
