- [Instructor] So, we're making progress here…building up our model of our musical instrument…through Grasshopper.…You can see in the Rhino window we've got the profile curve…for the wooden base of the instrument,…as well as the through holes,…and those will act for both the base…as well as the wooden top.…And over here in Grasshopper…you can start to see our definition that's getting built up.…So let's keep moving ahead,…and in this video I'm going to take a look…at making the profile…for the wooden top of the musical instrument.…You remember from our manual modeling chapter…that is the rectangular piece…that kind of sits over top of everything,…and helps us to sandwich all the parts together.…
So let's jump into Grasshopper here,…and since we're making a rectangular shape,…it makes sense to start off with a rectangle component.…So grab that from the Curve, Primitive Menu.…Okay, and this is just like the rectangle component…that we used to outline that profile of the base.…So we need to input a base plane,…and that I'd like to set to the center point…
