Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Calculating X offsets, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- So in the last video we looked at measuring … each of the individual panels plus a spacing factor that … we can add to move them a little bit apart from one another. … So lets just take a look really quick with a panel … and see what's coming out of that step. … So you can see here, I'm getting measurements … for each of the sets of panels and … those paths are arranged into groups … of four indices and that's corresponding to the number … of columns that I set and my slider earlier on. … Now, if we think through this here, … we are getting the dimensions … of each panel plus a spacing factor. … That's a little bit different than the actual offset … we would need to apply to each panel if … we were to move it in space and that's … because those offsets would need … to be the dimensions compounded with each other. … So the further down that column we go the more … these factors should get added together and that's … what we are going to work on in this video. … So lets delete this panel and …
