Grasshopper Review

Gives A Blank Canvas In Order To Create, Automate, And Solve Complex 2D And 3D Tasks

What is most valuable?

The product gives you a blank canvas in order to create, automate, and solve complex 2D and 3D tasks.

What needs improvement?

Interoperability with other programs and inability to file share and collaborate within a team or office.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The program can crash when solving complex tasks, however overall it is quite stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Yes. Often scripts can become very large and as a result slow, however we have developed our own workflow and plugin to solve this issue (Elefront).

How are customer service and technical support?

Support comes via the Grasshopper website and forum, which is often a good source of information with quick responses to questions that you might have.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Not really, most people start with basic scripting then move on to Grasshopper, the advantage of GH is the visual aspect of being able to see what you're scripting.

How was the initial setup?

Very simple.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's free. So keep it going that way!

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Not really much competition.

What other advice do I have?

I highly recommend! Needs a good level of training to get going, but once you have the knowledge, it is a highly valuable skill/asset.
