…Let's talk about the algorithmic approach we can take to transformation in…Grasshopper, and how it's a little bit different than working directly in Rhino.…In this example,…our algorithm generates a six by nine grid of spheres, spaced evenly apart.…The spheres are separated into three groups, each with a different radius.…So, each group is actually half of the radius of the previous.…Now, let's think about how we would make this if we were just working in…Rhino without Grasshopper.…So here's one way.…First I'd start out by making a sphere, and I give it a radius of 0.5 units.…Next I'd make an array of 4 spheres in the Y-direction and…I'd space those 1.25 units apart.…
Then I'd scale down the top sphere from it's center point by a factor of 0.5.…Then I'd make another four unit array spaced 1.25 units apart in…the Y-direction.…And again scale down the top sphere around it's center point by a factor of .05.…And then finish off by making a three unit array in the Y-direction.…Still space 1.25 units apart.…Now, I'd select the whole column and make a six unit array in the X-direction.…
