Reasonably priced ... is this perhaps a new and maybe better direction ... and Neon gets better and better.Does it make sense to invest the time getting better in one of those rather than pursuing nXt or is it going to move forward?ericSee More

I have not used this newsgroup previously but I have a question so I'll try it.

NXT loads into Rhino 5 just fine but not into Rhino 4 ... how do I get it into there?

thanks

eric

For Rhino 5 you can use the 64-bit installer.  For Rhino 4, please also install the 32-bit version of Flamingo NXT.
