Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at basic scalar components, part of Learning Grasshopper.
…Let's jump into using scalar components in Grasshopper for…basic mathematical operations.…Scalar components are pretty straightforward.…They're stand alone components that do things like add, subtract, and…compare numbers, for example.…We're just covering the basics here, in later videos we'll look at some more…advanced scalar components and techniques to perform mathematical and logical…operations using things like functions and Grasshopper's expression editor.…So let's start out with operators.…Operators are components that perform basic algebraic functions on two inputs.…
You can find them under the Maths > Operators > Component tab, and…in our example here, we've got two number sliders and we…are plugging them into several different operator components to see how they work.…We have got each operator component connected to a panel just to…give us a visual output of the result of our operation, so the first one here,…this is pretty simple.…A plus B, and we have 9 plus 27 equals 36.…Pretty easy, right?…
