Grasshopper 1.0 includes updated components that have multithreading or parallel processing enabled. In this video, learn how to import the Grasshopper Parallel library to create our own multithreading functions.
- [Instructor] Using Grasshopper components within Python…can be useful if we want to make scripts clearer…as you can condense large scripts…into tightly knit workflows.…Another set of tools we have access to…through the Grasshopper library…are functions that allow for multi-threading…through functions in the parallel name space.…Multi-threading basically allows us to make use…of multiple calls on the computer CPU instead of just one.…By doing this multiple operations or functions…could be running simultaneously…speeding things up drastically.…
I've continued on a little bit from the last exercise…in which we created a surface.…From that same passing component I've also output the curves…that were used to make that surface.…With those curves I've extracted the top curve.…And then from the top curve I've created…600 perpendicular frames.…And from these frames created a series of plane art surfaces…which is then used to intersect…the initial surface that we created…and the result of this is 600 curves.…
This is where we can see multi-threading in action.…
