Become a patron


We have been working on Ladybug Tools since 2013, and with the help of some awesome people from around the globe Ladybug Tools has not only “survived” but has flourished during the last couple of years. It is now an industry standard toolkit, with more than 120,000 downloads just for the Grasshopper version and is used by both professionals and professors alike. In order to sustain the project over the long run, we have started a Patreon page to collect funding. There, you can become a member and receive special rewards for helping keep the insects flying.

* You can also use PayPal for one-time contribtions.

Become an industry partner


Your industry is the mechanism that translates the value of Ladybug Tools into real buildings and products that improve the world. For this reason, your business is important to us and we have created several partnership options that will enable your company to make the most of our software.

Because of the finite number of hours that we (the developers of Ladybug Tools) have available, we limit the number of industry partners we take per year. We accept new partners on a first come, first serve basis.
