In this video, see how the Dynamo mathematical operator nodes can be used to solve an example problem using the retail shelf type data you imported from Excel in a previous video.
- [Instructor] In a previous example,…we've imported data about several different types…of retail shelves from an Excel spreadsheet.…Then we'd used some common Dynamo nodes…for managing nested lists,…including this list transposed node, which grouped together…all of the retail shelves typed data together…by their properties rather than by their shelf type.…In this video, let's use Dynamo to solve an example problem…with the data that we pulled in from Excel.…Some of the data that we brought in from Excel…report the width and the height…of each type of retail shelf.…
Let's use this width and height data,…multiply those values together…and find out what each shelf's total wall area will be,…which will be a brand new list of information…that we didn't originally bring in from Excel.…We need to begin by extracting the right lists…of information from our list transposed node.…One of the reasons I suggested that we use this first item,…and rest of item nodes…when we were first bringing the Excel data in,…was so that we could very easily go back…
