- [Instructor] I have my exercise file open already. … In this video, I want to show an interesting technique … in which we're going to use NURBS geometry … as a surrogate for math functions. … And this is really what NURBS is all about. … It's a flexible function that can conform … to the geometry of all different types of math functions. … So first, I'm going to add a point to my model. … I'm going to set one point here. … I'm going to plug this in, … and this should look familiar to most Grasshopper users. … This is an attractor. … I have a grid of points, and I'm sampling the distance … between the grid of points and the point … that I'm moving around. … So this is one of the first things that people usually build … in Grasshopper, and one of the things that is typical to add … is a falloff function that controls how quickly … the diameter of the circles, or whatever property … you're adjusting, falls off as a function of the distance. … So we'll go to Params, Input, Graph Mapper. …
