ShapeDiver 2.0 is finally here. But what exactly is ShapeDiver 2.0? Well, a lot of things. We’re still the best way to create online applications based on Grasshopper files, but now we're taking the necessary steps to make sure the process of building these applications is more efficient and flexible, both for individual designers and teams alike.
To begin with, most of our users have surely noticed the tip of the iceberg: a completely updated platform frontend and the new tools it offers. However, ShapeDiver 2.0 covers the entire ShapeDiver infrastructure, from the platform to the Grasshopper plugin functionalities, and perhaps most importantly everything in between. New features both extend our focus on online applications but also introduce a set of tools aimed at large design teams in the AEC industry and beyond.
Whether you are a long-time user of ShapeDiver or a Grasshopper enthusiast curious to learn about the classic features of the platform as much as the newer ones, this webinar is the ideal introduction to everything our cloud platform has to offer. Join us and decide whether the ShapeDiver tools can improve your design, manufacturing and/or sales processes!

Time: 6pm CET, 12pm ET, 9am PST.
1. Building Online Applications (Estimated time: 45 min.)
On the one hand, this new iteration of the ShapeDiver platform both solidifies and extends the core ShapeDiver vision: helping designers build online applications around parametric design. Key developments include the following features which we will cover in detail during the webinar:
- Advanced iframe embedding
- Extended file imports and export
- Detailed model and account analytics
- New viewer and backend API
In particular, we will detail a complete workflow for turning a Grasshopper definition into an interactive, powerful design application online.
2. Work Better Together (Estimated time: 20 min.)
On the other hand, in the context of our merge with the Swarm application developed by the Core Studio at Thornton Tomasetti, the ShapeDiver platform has extended its scope to a set of new functionalities aimed at optimizing the internal processes of design teams. The webinar will cover the following topics in particular:
- Secure sharing functionalities
- Attribute system and its applications
3. Next Steps (Estimated time: 20 min.)
We will close the webinar with a preview of the ShapeDiver roadmap, with a focus on the tools that we believe will open up new workflows for parametric designers:
- Saved states management
- Create teams or organizations between multiple ShapeDiver users
- Integrations into desktop design software
- ShapeDiver computations from within Grasshopper (“Hops” for ShapeDiver)
We’re very excited to show everyone what we’ve been working on for the past 12+ months. We hope that by the end of this webinar you will agree that the wait was worth it. To help everyone plan accordingly, we calculate that this event will consist of around 90 minutes of walkthrough and explanations, plus 20 to 30 minutes for Q&A purposes.
