I use many datasets generated outside of grasshopper and rhino within my workflows. I use Elefront to store all that object data within my rhino objects and things are good. Enter Speckle, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to call all that object data up within the web viewer?
The issue is that manually entering 45 data key names into the “Create Custom User Data” inputs would be a drag. So how can we automate this? Does this functionality already exist?
I see three options:
- Have users generate their own JSON and create a “Set User Json Data” (SUJD) component and document the standards for that json structure.
- Have a “Create Lots of Custom User Data” (CLUD) component with two inputs “Keys” and “Values” [no ZUI]
- Metahopper could be apart of this conversation. Metahopper can rename components, how about renaming component inputs?
I’ll explore hacking CUD to achieve #2, but C# is not my strength…
