Dear Rhino experts:
The reason I ask about Rhino 2 & 3 and their scripts is the following:
A few years back I used Rhino 2 to design a small router (I know, Rhino is
a modeler, not a CAD system, but it was all I had access to...). The design
wasn't good, but in the process I learned about Rhino scripts and wrote a few,
particularly one that was very useful, enabling me to automatically build
a model by assembling hundreds of smaller parts.
I now have the time to go back playing with these scripts, specially the
"mount script" which I'd like to extend with parametric capability. But I
see that Rhino is now in version 4... So let me ask these questions:
Is anybody still using Rhino 2? Rhino 3?
Would a Rhino 2 script work under Rhino 3 or 4? Would it be too difficult
to upgrade a Rhino 2 script to Rhino 3 or 4?
There must be dozens of scripts around to do these things, but would anybody
be interested in the "mount script" or in its parametric extension?
Is it still possible to buy Rhino 3 (at a reduced price, of course)? I thought
Rhino 2 was pretty good (although the scripting system was somewhat buggy) - Is
it worth it to upgrade? Why?
Thank you for your patience. If there is any interest, I will start by posting
the documentation file for my original "mount script".
