LunchBox v0.263

Yet another update to LunchBox with new components and updates to existing functionality.

New components:
  • Attractor (Normal):  A straightforward attractor system that maps distance variables to a domain.
  • Diamond Grid:  A grid component that exposes the corners, midpoints, and normals of diamond-shaped panels.  Useful for constructing custom panels with this as the base pattern.
  • Rhino Command:  A component that allows users to send commands to the Rhino command-line from within Grasshopper.  Useful for automating commands not available inside of Grasshopper.

Please note that you may need to update parts of your definitions if you are using some of the updated components.  Some components now have new outputs and may display slightly different behavior.

A full list of updates can be found here...

I have also made a little example file for using the attractor system.  (more examples coming soon)
