    we would be interested in this.

    Rhino 5 comes with python, so I'm guessing it would not be too difficult to implement...

    Hello Rupert! That is great news! There seems to be a whole little community evolving over at http://python.rhino3d.com

    For an engine, we ideally need both QT and python. if either of these are missing, the usual solution is to run a separate process that has a connection to a listener inside of the target application. This is how photoshop works for example. We need to investigate if it would be possible to run QT inside of Rhino3d - if not, the best approach is probably to run a separate process, like with Photoshop. In either case, having python built into Rhino will make things a lot simpler I think so this is great news!

    Did you experiment with Rhino and Tank at all Rupert? Did you manage to get an experimental engine going already?
