Join Walter Zesk for an in-depth discussion in this video Sides views and fitness value, part of Grasshopper: Generative Design for Architecture.
We're in the process of implementing … the generative design model … we've mapped out, here in Grasshopper. … We set up our site. … We've built out our logic for the sine wave, … and we've combined the two to create a roof surface … we can see here in the model. … Now we're going to calculate the sides and the views, … In order to get the sides, … we're going to use the boundary of the site, … and we're going to extrude that up to create the sidewalls. … We can get the extrude component by double-clicking. … Typing in extrude. … I'll connect this curve. … Question is how high should I extrude? … I can just set a really high number, … and hope that it always works. … Or we can base it on the geometry that we're using here. … So, I have a bounding box, … and I have the top of the bounding box here, … in the stage point. … So I extract that point. … The Z is the top, the bounding box for the original surface. … Problem is, I moved everything up using the Z vector. … So we need to incorporate that value into the Z value, …
