eleFront is a plugin for Grasshopper, the visual programming editor for Rhino3d.
eleFront enables Grasshopper users to generate metadata alongside their geometry as they work, in the same familiar environment and workflows. This metadata - in the form of attributes - can then be used to query, sort, or filter those objects, making it possible to organize and manage very large models with a huge number of objects.
Easily Reference existing Geometry into your scripts
Add Attributes to your Geometry
Filter, Sort, Query your Objects
Algorithmically define and modify Layers
Create Annotations in Grasshopper
Define, Reference, and Explode Blocks
Divide a Large Project into Smaller Stages
Additional Tools for Managing Data Trees
eleFront is developed by Front, Inc. - an international and multidisciplinary design consulting group specializing in the design and execution of innovative building facades.
We developed eleFront primarily in order to deliver the complex and challenging construction projects with which we're engaged. We have made the plugin publicly available and free, in hopes to promote a data-centric way of producing 3d models.
