Rick, We are having similar problems as Nathan posted below. We also tried to do an analysis of a simple beam in just RhinoBim, but everytime we try to "add results" Rhino 5 crashes and all is lost. Any ideas? We are using version 5.1.2012.207, 2/7/2012 and RhinoBIM beta 0.3.5.4 build date February 10, 2012
Rick, We just were introduced to RhinoBIM the demo looks great. We have loaded the software and everything was great until Rhino 5 had a fatal error. Now when try to use the grasshopper components Bim Beam does not show up. Some of my students are having the same issue only they never have seen this component show up. The error message while grasshopper is loading is error on adding bim object. HELP!
Rick, thank you for your message. I sent a response another way that allowed only 200 letters. I am glad to see that I have a have to really communicate. Rhino is different than RhinoBIM, will we need both softwares on our systems to make them work? I am hoping that RhinoBIM will be a stand alone software. Do you know what file types will it allow to exported?

Sorry for my late reply. I had the opportunity to test the BIM version of rhino with structures and works great, congratulations!
Are you planning to create more binding options to joint areas created by multiple profiles? I mean, it would be great if you could edit the joining areas of multiple profiles and later draft them out with accuracy for building the structure.
I was wondering more about a data base for architectural elements, such as doors, walls, rooms, floor levels, finishes, materials, openings and windows? Is there a connection with IFC? Will the building information be accessible outside of Rhino?
I apologize to the community RHINO BIM, I do not speak English
Dear Rick, I have begun doing BIM, with Rhino because the industry is DWG. and I started with Project Coordination Architecture v / s structure and both V / s MEP.
I think it's important to hear lindustria and problems

About a year ago we (Snøhetta Architects) did a competition for the new National Museum in Oslo. Statsbygg (Property Manager for the Norwegian government) had BIM model as a requirement, and they intend to require this for all future projects. Even in competition phase! We ended up exporting geometry to Revit and then creating an IFC file from there.
Since then I've frequently been searching for Rhino BIM developments , thinking someone must be developing something to bridge this gap. So I think you're right on time with this application!
And I'll be happy to beta test and give feedback as it evolves.
Long time no see! Cool to finally find you on the web! I looked a few time over the last 6-7 years. A specific Rick Smith is hard to find on the web ;-). Brian James gave us a presentation today at MSA and mentoned you! He was presenting some awesome software!
Not sure if you remember me, I was a model maker at Moshe's when you started there back in 2003. Worked for 5 years at another Architects (Wilson Butler Architects) but economy winds me back up here at Moshe's. Fantastic to see you are doing so well! Finally got your work up online! Excellent! Hope you are doing well!

Sounds like you are close to a release. You might be interested by some of the developments I've been working on. Please get in touch if you are interested in interop and cooperation between our tools.
hi rick! andres brought this development to my attention. i'm looking forward to experimenting with rhinoBIM!!! there is a huge demand for BIM academically and professionally that has not been met in my region. i'm excited to see how this can integrate with rhino.
