Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up spline height controls, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video we did some work … to locate the corners of our spline profiles, … and that'll help us as we work towards our goal here … of drawing out those rectangular spline profiles. … So we'll continue with that here … and add in some more fine tune controls. … In Grasshopper I've got the file locate-corners-end.gh open. … And in Rhino I just have a blank Rhino file, … and I've opened that using … the template for small objects in centimeters, … but you can use whatever units you'd like. … So just to review a little bit here, … we're using the evaluate length component … to draw out pairs of points along each of those offset lines … going out from the corner lines of our Voronoi cell pattern. … And we added in a slider to be able to adjust the height … so the distance between those points … will then become the height of each spline. … Now one thing I notice here is that, … if I'm imagining a rectangle being drawn out here, … that eventually will become a pocket …
