Rhino Forma Plugin 0.7.0 building types

Hello, I am using Rhino Forma plugin 0.7.0. to push geometry into a Forma project. I can push and pull geometry from Forma, but for some reason I can't change Forma building types for the export. I can see possible types flashing briefly, but can't change them. The same happens in Rhino 7&8.


Any suggestions how to fix this?

Can you post a video or screenshots of the behavior?  That would help us make sure that we're looking in the right area.

It seems like you’re experiencing an issue with the Rhino Forma plugin. Based on the information I found, there have been some compatibility issues reported with the Forma plugin and Rhino 8 due to changes in the version of .net used in Rhino 8. The good news is that the Forma team is aware of these issues and is working on an update to make the plugin compatible with Rhino 8.


In the meantime, here are a few general troubleshooting steps you could try:

  1. Reinstall the Plugin: Uninstall the current plugin and then reinstall it. Sometimes, this can resolve any issues that might have occurred during the initial installation.
  2. Check for Updates: Ensure that both Rhino and the Forma plugin are up-to-date. Developers often release updates to fix bugs and improve compatibility.
  3. Contact Support: If the issue persists, it might be helpful to reach out to the Forma support team. They can provide more specific guidance and possibly a timeline for when the updated plugin will be available.

Thank you for your reply. Reinstalling the latest available plugin didn't solve the issue. I've tried the plugin on two computers and in Rhino 7 and 8 with similar results. I've contacted the Forma support team. I hope they can fix this soon.

Couldn't capture this on any available screen recording apps, so here is a shaky video recorded on iphone.

Thanks, we will look into this.

Unfortunately we have been unable to reproduce this.  Can you let us know what other plugins you have installed that are on both machines and in both versions?  It could be that one of them is interfering somehow.

One Rhino was a clean install. The other had Enscape, which I unloaded. Removing Enscape didn't help.


I've also installed the following packages for Grasshopper. Not sure if these are interfering.



Can I provide any other information?

An update - the plugin is works if I attach the window to Rhino UI. Before I was using it as a floating panel.
