Rhino plug-ins require Rhino to be installed and it is recommended that Grasshopper is also installed. Note since Rhino6, Grasshopper is in-built but for Rhino5 must be installed independently.
Revit plug-ins will require Revit to be installed.
Know which version of associated applications are installed on your computer. We currently provide public installers for Rhino5, Rhino6 and RhinoMac. We also support recent builds of Revit and Tekla. If you cannot find the version that you require please contact us.
Most structural analysis connectors are also version specific. You can typically only install one specific version (which will permit legacy use of Grasshopper scripts in the future when newer versions are in use without upgrading or replacing components).
You can download a trial version of the latest Rhino here.
Step 1 - Download Installers
