In this video, learn about the several different methods used to connect point objects with straight lines, including the line, polycurve, and polygon geometry types.
- [Narrator] In this video we'll look at…a few different methods to create…straight lines by connecting point objects together.…Our workspace might look a little bit crowded,…but what we're actually doing is we're just connecting…eight points together using the same point by coordinates…node that we covered in the last video.…We've also plugged every point in our workspace…into a single list create node…just in case we need to use all of…these points organized in a single list.…You'll also notice that these points…appear in our background 3D preview.…
Now, we're interested in constructing lines…which are a type of geometry,…so let's turn our attention to…the geometry section of the node library.…You might notice that there isn't a section here for lines,…but there is a section for curves.…Even though we tend to think of lines…and curves as different things;…a line being straight while a curve…tends to have bends in it,…Dynamo does categorize lines as a type of curve.…If we open up the curve section,…we can see that there is several different…
