Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to vectors, part of Learning Grasshopper.
…Let's talk a bit about vectors and how they operate in Grasshopper.…I f you worked a lot in Rhino you're probably at least a little bit familiar…with vecotors.…You'll find components for working with vectors under the vector component tab and…we'll be looking at a few of the different panels in this video.…So let's start off with an example.…Here I've got a simple construct point component and…I grabbed this from the vector point menu.…And I'm just feeding that in with three different number sliders.…And I see my point in the Rhino viewport.…Let's take a look at a similar component.…
This time from the vector vector menu.…And we're looking for vector XYZ.…Notice that the inputs for vector XYZ look very similar to the inputs for…construct point.…They each have an x, y and a z component.…So what happens when I connect my number sliders that are now…connected to the construct point component to the vector xyz component.…Well, let's see.…And nothing happens, at least nothing that I can see.…Now, that's because vectors themselves aren't geometry.…
