Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Checking out curve basics, part of Up and Running with Grasshopper.
…You probably already know from working in Rhino that curves have a number of…basic properties that help us to define them.…For example all curves have control points as well as start and end points.…Some curves have additional properties like degree.…And other curves could be either open where the start and end points are in…different locations, or closed where the start and end points are identical.…Now Grasshopper has a number of basic curve components located under…the Curve > Primitive component panel.…Things like Circle, Ellipse, Arc, or Line.…
There are also some more sophisticated curve types under the Curve > Spline menu,…and that's what we'll be exploring in this video.…My example file, I have some points from Rhino,…that I have internalized into a point component.…So I just defined them locally from Rhino, and then selected Internalized Data, so…that they save along with my Grasshopper definition.…I have connected that list of points to several of the Spline-curve components.…So we've got NURBS Curve, Interpolate curve,…
