This extension provides add-on and component wizards for Grasshopper projects. This includes a spiral for an Archimedean spiral component. It makes setting up debugging easier and automatically references RhinoCommon.dll, Grasshopper.dll, and GH_IO.dll. Rhinoceros and Grasshopper are requirements for this wizard to operate correctly.
If you have an existing project
You can still use the wizard to add new component even if your project already exists.
