Complex forms need to be analyzed to test whether options are viable. In this video, look at one possible analysis workflow by calculating the view vectors from each frame we created earlier and display the result in a legible format.
- [Instructor] Analyzing geometry forms in Rhino…has become much easier and accessible…through the variety of tools available in Grasshopper.…Analysis can be done for a variety of reasons,…one of which may be to evaluate view corridors from facades.…As we've created unique frames through the use of Python,…let's use the information from those components…to analyze views from each of the frames…by shooting rays and checking the results.…As you can see in the Rhino view port,…I've gone ahead and I've simply added some static geometry,…which we'll use to represent local context.…
So let's add a geometry component to reference this in.…Double-click the left mouse button on the canvas…and write geometry.…And then right-click that component…and Set Multiple Geometries.…We'll go ahead and we'll select all of those…and hit spacebar.…Perfect, so we now have that geometry in Grasshopper.…In this exercise, our intent is to determine the view…from each of these frames…and we'll shoot rays or vectors…to see if they hit any of the surrounding context.…
