“There is so much exciting stuff going on out there…”
Bob McNeel, President and Founder of Robert McNeel & Associates, spoke with us at the 2019 Key Client Conference about the history of their product portfolio, which includes Rhino and Grasshopper. ARCHICAD users are most likely familiar with the ARCHICAD-Rhino-Grasshopper Toolset that connects the best design tools for the different design stages. These tools fill a gap in the design process between early stage design and Building Information Modeling. Bob shared with us his excitement about the impressive work he saw at the KCC using this powerful toolset.
