Conduit is a Grasshopper plugin that enables designers to create live data visualizations within the Rhinoceros 3D viewport. You can use Conduit to create reports that update with your parametric Grasshopper model.
I'll admit it - I've been installing Grasshopper plugins the 'Old Fashioned' way up until a few months ago. Navigating to the app's page on Food4Rhino, downloading the appropriate package, unblocking, unzipping, copying and pasting files... this familiar workflow is practically obsolete! McNeel has created a tool that enables Rhino users to bypass the bulk of this work with an integrated plugin manager: the Package Manager.
Grasshopper-based workflows empower Rhino-users to generate and collect data that can be useful in the design and documentation phases of projects. Exporting this data out to other more common database formats can streamline project operations and enhance cooperation and collaboration across diverse teams. An under-the-radar Proving Ground plug-in, called Slingshot, provides a toolkit that can be used to organize and manage relational databases.
While LunchBox seems to be widely known for its paneling utilities, it also includes tools that import and export data to and from Excel, JSON, and CSV. This free and open-source plugin for Grasshopper includes tools that help users to bridge workflow gaps and facilitate a smooth collaboration process.
