Blender Sverchok Add-on!

Amazing! I’ve just known Sverchok Blender add-on which enables you to generate 3d object using node-based editor, like Grasshopper in Rhinoceros. Grasshopper is a so famous plugin of Rhinoceros and very useful, but use of Grasshopper is limited to windows os. Sverchok is one of Blender add-on, so of course you can use it on your own mac!
