Working with geometry in Dynamo introduces a brand-new set of data types in addition to the numbers, strings, and Booleans that were covered previously. This video introduces the point, the most basic of these data types, which will be used in subsequent videos to construct the more complex geometry data types such as curves, surfaces, and solids.
- [Instructor] When we work with geometry in Dynamo,…we're faced with a brand new set of data types,…in addition to the numbers, strings, and booleans…that we're already used to working with.…Some of these new geometry data types will include…points, curves, vectors, planes, surfaces, and solids.…Let's start with the point, which is the most basic…of these geometry data types.…Later on in this course, we'll use points to construct…curves, which we tend to use to create surfaces and solids.…The nodes we'll be working with related to geometry…have their own geometry section in the node library.…
Here we see a handful of subsections,…many of which are named after different geometry data types.…Let's begin by creating a point.…So we'll open up the points, point section of the…geometry library.…We can see that there are a few methods to create…point geometry here.…Let's choose the most common way to create a point object,…which is by using the points by coordinates mode.…There are two nodes in the library called bicoordinates.…
