Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Calculating panel array rows, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Narrator] In the last video … we took the ex offset information … that we calculated in a previous video … and used it to build some motion vectors, … and that's been really helpful in laying out … our flat array of three dimensional panels for CNC routing, … and here I'm continuing where I left off in the last video. … So, what I'd like to do in this video … is start working out how to build out the row. … So, we've got the columns pretty set … but, lets take a look at what happens … if we have more panels than columns. … Right now we happen to have four columns set in our slider … and we happen to be feeding in four panels. … Let's go back to the beginning of our definition … and let's see if we can find a cell … with more than four panels. … So, now I can see what's happening here. … I'm getting some that are laid out correctly, right? … So, these ones over here look great, … everything is space accordingly, … but, we've got some overlap here … and what's essentially happening …
