Rhino Plugin

The Pollination plugin for Rhino allows you to create and simulate analytical models in parallel with your design model to get real-time insight on energy consumption, daylight, and thermal comfort.

Use the Rhino Plugin as a stand-alone application or combine it with Pollination's cloud-computing capabilities, verified simulation recipes, and collaboration features for an unparalleled environmental analysis experience. 🚀 If you need to import or export your model, you can do so in multiple file formats, including gbXML, IDF, OSM, and RAD files.

"Using Pollination Rhino plugin is a brutal quality of life enhancement over OpenStudio and Grasshopper-based vanilla LBT by streamlining the model-building process and QA&QC on input geometry. "

Keep Up with the Speed of Design

Never miss a design change and avoid manually rebuilding a model by using the Rhino Plugin to sync your analytical model with your design model.
If you add new rooms or spaces to an analytical model, you can use the match properties feature to copy and apply simulation data from existing spaces to new ones.


Automate Tedious Parts of Your Process

Whether you need to execute a large parametric study, generate geometry, or fix errors in your analytical model, you can use Pollination provided libraries to create scripts that automate repetitive and laborious tasks with the Rhino Plugin.
