Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting input data, part of Up and Running with Grasshopper.
…So we talked about the basic attributes of components and parameters,…now let's look at the ways to get data input into your Grasshopper definition.…There's basically three different ways we can get input data into a component.…The first is local definition,…where values are manually typed in the contextual menu.…Second is direct definition, where other components or…parameters feed data into the component.…And the third is direct import from geometry modeled in Rhino.…Let's start with defining data locally.…So here I have the Construct Point parameter.…
So again, this is a component that takes three numeric values and…combines them into a point in 3D space.…Right now, this point is giving us 000, so x, y and z are all defined locally as 0.…To change this, I can right click on any of the inputs,…go down to Set Number and just type in, let's say maybe I want this to be 1.0.…Click Commit Changes.…Maybe for y I want 2.0.…And again, clicking Commit Changes.…And then for z click 3.0.…And I can see as I've made each of those changes in my Rhino window,…
