Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with parameters and components, part of Learning Grasshopper.
…Let's jump in and talk about parameters and components.…The objects that make up a Grasshopper file, the technical term for…a Grasshopper file is a definition, fall into two main classes.…Parameters and components.…In a nutshell, parameters store data whereas components process data.…Let's talk a little bit about components first.…Components are generally divided into three main parts.…Here in my example file I have this construct point component as an example.…The three main parts.…We have a name this is usually located in the middle bar of the component.…
It's often abbreviated and it's also sometimes represented by an icon.…And this depends on how you set your display settings.…And we'll cover that in detail in a later video.…On the left hand side of the component, you will have input grips.…So these are these little white semi circles, and…these take input data to use in whatever operation the component handles.…On the right hand side you have output grips, so these…contain whatever information is passed on after the component processes it's input.…
