Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Calculating Y offsets, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, we did some work … to calculate the number of rows that we'll need … to lay out a gridded array of our three-dimensional panels. … And that'll be something that's really useful … as we move this project towards CNC routing. … In this video, I'm continuing where I left off, … so before we go any further here, … let's just take those components we made in the last video, … select them, right-click on the canvas and group them, … and let's give this group a title. … We'll call this Calculate Rows. … So, to calculate our Y offsets, … we could start very simply just with … a multiplication component. … And I can multiply the range of rows that we made … in the last video, … and that's something I'm setting with the slider, … way at the beginning of my definition … over here with my Shelf Parameters. … So I want that Shelf Depth Slider. … So I'll grab that output and then I'm clicking and holding … while I zoom out with my mouse scroll wheel, … and that just helps …
