Displaying of dimensions is not yet fully implemented, but on our list. Please expect it in the next months before the end of the year.


Please, Kangaroo 2 would be great: material behaviour, rigging, animations with physical properties, structure simulations, particle simulations, parametric urbanism … Shapediver could buffer some iterations and then later on play them together


Thanks for the input! The way you describe it working, with buffered iterations playing in a loop, makes sense for a ShapeDiver use of Kangaroo. However, you can imagine that there is significant work to make this happen, as it’s very different from the standard ShapeDiver behaviour. Furthermore we don’t see a lot of practical applications for it… Which is why we would call this a nice-to-have, but in a somewhat distant future, unless many users demonstrate a strong need.


I second Dani’s request for Cocoon. Oddly, it’s not even listed on the official plugin listing:

It’s only in the developer’s web site:

Please note that Kangaroo has two versions, 1 and 2 and they are both needed.


Since you are already partnered with Shapeways, the one and only Grasshopper plug-in for filling bodies with an internal truss should be a priority to add, namely Intralattice:


The plug-in Clipper would be great.
It is just a small plug-in, but extremely fast with 2D-operations.
There are extreme time savings possible with this plugin compared to similar functions in grasshopper (that do not work that well as clipper in certain cases). That would be useful with the time restrictions for calculations in ShapeDiver.


Thanks for the suggestion, we will consider Clipper for addition.


We are happy to announce for two further Grasshopper plug-ins:

  1. Clipper (
  2. Exoskeleton (


Is there any plans on adding Mosquito?
I use their “GDirect” component to get a distance from two addresses for delivery pricing.
or is there already a way of doing the same thing?


Great! I just realized now that clipper was added because of my forum- illiteracy :smile:


Many thanks for your suggestion. We have added Mosquito to the list of plugins considered for addition.


We have added support for the Pufferfish plug-in.


Yes! Dani- thank you for developing Peacock, and for suggesting the plugins you mentioned, I couldn’t agree more.


Please be aware that

  • Weaverbird
  • MeshEdit
  • Peacock
  • PhylloMachine

are available already.


Kangaroo would be my first pref. Would also love to see Panelling Tools and Nursery


Many thanks for these suggestions. We should be able to add Panelling Tools in the near future.
Both Kangaroo and Nursery can not be added at this stage, because plug-ins that loop (re-schedule new solutions in Grasshopper) can not be allowed on our system.
