Analysis is useful for extracting data from our model; this is even more valuable if the information can be assessed visually. To do this, learn to bake geometry directly from Python into Rhino with color assigned to the geometry to display analysis properties.
- [Instructor] Now that we understand how to access…the Rhino document, let's add the necessary…name spaces and modules needed to bake…our panels into Rhino.…First, let's clean up some of these nodes.…Let's remove the vector display components and the tag.…We're going to be working in this passing component…that we created in the last video.…So let's start by adding a few inputs.…First we'll need a control to tell the component…when to bake such as a Boolean.…
So let's add a Boolean total component…by double left-clicking and writing Boolean total.…Let's add this into an input called bake…which will be a type of Boolean.…We'll also need the frames that we created…in this previous Python component.…So above frame centers, let's add frames…which will be list access and a type of brick.…
Then let's plug those frames in…and turn the preview off for this Python component.…Next we'll be baking our panels as two different colors,…ones that have not obstruction to the view corridors…and ones that have intersections.…So let's create two color swatches…
