Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Measuring tolerances, part of Grasshopper Essential Training.
- [Instructor] In this video we're starting…right where we left off in the last video…with our gridshell definition,…and I'm working in the example file 006-gridshell-end.gh.…And in Rhino I happen to be…using the gridshell-base.3dm model,…but since we internalized all of our data…into Grasshopper you could also just use a blank Rhino file…and that would be just fine.…So here we'd like to add a couple of finishing goals…onto our gridshell.…And that'll do a couple things.…That will help us take into account…these weird little kind of tail fin things…that are sticking off the ends here…and get that into a form that makes a little bit more sense.…
It'll also help us in sort of our finishing stage process…which is form finding.…So that's something that Grasshopper is really good at,…and working parametrically is really all about…looking at a range of possibilities…and helping us easily find the criteria…that we're looking for.…So in this case, since we're working with a gridshell,…what I'd like as an end product is a mesh…
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.
