What are you most excited about in this release? Let us know in this thread.


Fantastic news.

Some quick feedback. For me updating the Grasshopper app/component is preventing Grasshopper from opening from within Rhino 8. I uninstalled it and Grasshopper opens fine, then reinstalled the Grasshopper component and again it didn’t work.

It’s my first time seeing the mapper in Rhino, it does say new next to it after all, very exciting development. I haven’t tested it but the more mapping tools we have the better. If you can map to unreal or twinmotion (if possible) in the road map that would be fantastic. Then Rhino can be used to geometry and data processing (it just seems faster for complex anything), push one way to BIM and the direction to visualisation, to me, that would be the ideal scenario given the software we all have access to in the current market.

Keep up the great work!


Hey @scottyvalentine ,

What do you mean by updating the Grasshopper app/component? Can you give more context? We’d like to make sure nothing crashes when you use Speckle + Rhino/GH.

yeah sure sorry. I go to speckle manager, I press update or Install speckle for grasshopper. Then I go to open Rhino. Rhino works fine, then I open grasshopper and the splash screen just hangs and grasshopper does not load.

Sorry, I’m probably using the wrong terminology and that’s what’s confusing you.

hi @gokermu
the Power BI Custom Visual will be installed automatically or you will provide a file to import the custom visual similar to the previous one powerbiSpeckleVisual.2.18.0.pbiviz.

You still need to download :


I’ve tried installing the 2.19.0 version for Rhino under Mac OS but it failed with the message showing “Something went wrong - Connector for Rhino was not installed”. Hence, I guess Rhino 8.6 in Mac version is still not supported yet?

Hey @Kahtzun Rhino 8 is still not supported for Mac. It is still a work in progress. Once we have an update, we will make an announcement.
