Food4Rhino is McNeel's community service for plug-ins. Users can find the latest Rhino plug-ins, Grasshopper add-ons, scripts and much more. Moreover, they can contact developers and share their applications.


Grasshopper 🦗 is a graphical algorithm editor that integrates with Rhino3D modeling tools. You use Grasshopper to design algorithms that then automate tasks in Rhino3D. Grasshopper's visual "plug-and-play" style gives designers the ability to combine creative problem solving with novel control systems through the use of a fluid graphical interface.

  1. The three input parameters of the Circle CNR component.
  2. The circle CNR component area.
  3. The output parameter of the Circle CNR component.

A component needs data to perform its actions, and it usually produces a result. For this reason, most components have a set of nested parameters called inputs and outputs, respectively. The input parameters are on the left side, and the output parameters are on the right side.

There are a few Grasshopper components that have inputs but no outputs, or vice versa. If a component has no inputs or outputs, it has a jagged edge.
