See how to set up Galapagos, with a simple example.
- [Instructor] With the knowledge that evolutionary solvers … enable us to solve or optimize problems … we do not fully understand, … let's test the process out in Grasshopper using Galapagos. … We will pick a problem … that we have an existing alternative solution for … so we can compare the evolutionary solver … against a traditional computed solution. … In this example, we will ask a simple question. … What is the highest point on a 2D curve? … We will draw a curve on the XY work plane … and determine the point along the curve … that has the highest Y value. … This is particularly useful as a test … because Grasshopper has an existing tool … with the same functionality. … We can compare the evolutionary solution … with the existing computed solution. … If you were to build your own function … that computes the highest point along a NURBS curve … similar to the existing component, … it would require a full understanding of how NURBS models … compute locations along the curve … using knots, weights, and degree. …
