What is Grasshopper?
Grasshopper is a visual programming interface for designers, architects, and engineers. It's part of the Rhinoceros 3D modeling software and it allows the creation of algorithms that manipulate geometry and data in a CAD environment. This enables the creation of powerful tools that can solve complex problems.
Thanks to Grasshopper, exploring design, automating manufacturing processes, and manipulating data, is faster and more accurate than using traditional programming. This practice is called Parametric Design.
Who uses Grasshopper?
Grasshopper is widely used in the design community across multiple industries. Not only does Grasshopper help shorten product design cycles with much faster iterations, but it also gave birth to new design and manufacturing possibilities.
Today, Parametric Design allows designers, architects, and engineers from all over the world to collaborate and work faster to solve complex problems that were unimaginable a decade ago.
What has been the challenge so far?
Sharing Grasshopper files between designers and non-technical stakeholders has traditionally been problematic. With ShapeDiver it now becomes possible for team members, managers, and even consumers to contribute through co-design and achieve unique results.
Improve communication. Optimize collaboration workflows. Automate the sales process. Anything is possible.
How does ShapeDiver compare to Rhino Compute?
Whether you are a startup looking to create online configurators based on your Grasshopper files or a company looking to share proprietary Grasshopper plugins and scripts with whole teams of designers, architects, and engineers, understanding the differences between Rhino Compute and ShapeDiver is essential to making informed decisions about your cloud-based workflow.
Need help creating your Grasshopper files?
Are you new to the world of Parametric Design? No worries! Our team of experts can help you create your first Grasshopper model from scratch, so you can get started confidently with ShapeDiver.
Alternatively, we can also provide private training to your design team so they can be fully independent and work at their own pace.

Your Challenges Solved
Let your clients co-design and configure their purchases to unmatched precision from any device. Build unlimited parameter options and advanced user experiences to create the ultimate online experience.
Collaborate on design iterations, make decisions as a team and create interoperability workflows with other design environments. The information has never traveled so efficiently and freely.
Export fabrication data directly from an online interface after your users make a purchase or configure a product. Use the full potential of additive and distributed manufacturing to reduce costs and shorten production times.
Let "super-users" create powerful tools with Grasshopper that others can re-use and integrate within their own tools, in or outside of Grasshopper. Now Grasshopper comes to them instead of the other way around.
