Grasshopper extension updated  with new solver for cable nets. Rhinomembrane v 3.0  is a update of rel 3.0  for Rhino 6.0 64 bit. It has in built professional form-finding solvers for any category of tensile and cable net structures. The plugin is also fully compatible with our flagship product ixCube 4-10  so any model generated with RM can be  baked on the fly to ixCube 4-10 for future structural analysis and patterning.
