Learn organization techniques in Grasshopper definitions. Implement a rounding expression on number slider components to keep units consistent. This training video is one step of several tutorials on developing an algorithmic design for a musical instrume
- [Instructor] So, we've gone almost completely…through the process of building up…a parametric design for a musical instrument,…here in Grasshopper.…In this video, I'd like to just do a few wrap up steps,…we'll finish up some grouping,…I'll add a little bit of rounding factors…to our user inputs…and that'll just make things a little bit…more convenient to work with.…So, in Rhino, I'm working the file…instrumentsetup.3dm,…and in Grashopper, I have the file…0090-instrument-extrude-top.gh, open.…So, the last step of my algorithm…that I specified at the beginning of the chapter,…was to collect all of the bakeable geometry,…and basically I'd like to just collect…everything that I'm building here in Grasshopper,…into one component that will make it easy to translate…into Rhino geometry,…or to turn the preview on and off,…if for some reason, I need to hide it.…
So, I'm going to go back…into my definition here,…and I'm going to spend some time…just right clicking and disabling preview…on anything that isn't either…a curve or a solid,…
By the end of the course, you'll see how even basic literacy in Grasshopper can be applied to developing projects for art, manufacturing, architecture, and design.
