How can I make my Rhino-Grasshopper based app a cloud app instead of a local app?


I have created and published an app which is integrated with a Rhino-Grasshopper file. Whenever I try to run my Form Finding app, first it(Rhino-Grasshopper) opens in my local machine and then the output is visualized.

I am not sure if this is the only way or is there any other way where I do not need to keep my local machine on while running the app.

Please guide me through this.
Thank you.

Hi Darshan,

Rhino/Grasshopper does not run on our infrastructure. That is why you use a worker to integrate with this program. This means that you need to set up a machine that runs both the program and the worker. The worker is a program that connects to the VIKTOR platform and waits for tasks you send through your app.

Similar to setting up a worker for your development workspace, you can also set one up for the form finding app. You assign a worker you created in the worker admin panel to the form finding app by selecting more actions > edit worker.

Please have a look at this guide for more information.

Understood. Thank you for your clarification. :+1:
