Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Constructing base planes for orientation, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, … we looked at using the deconstruct brep component … and some sorting to get the largest face … from each of our three dimensional shelf panels. … We're going to continue where we left off, … so moving on from this last step, … we need to work on using that information … from the largest face to create a base plane for each panel, … which we'll then use to orient it … onto the world XY construction plane. … So I'll give myself a little bit more room here. … And I'm going to bring up a construct plane component. … And a surface points component. … So essentially what we're going to be doing … is taking the largest face from each panel … and I can see here if I highlight this list item component, … it's highlighting just the largest faces … from each of those trapezoidal profiles. … So I can take those faces, break them down into points, … use those points to construct a plane, … which we'll use as a base plane for an orient later on. … So let's plug in the output of our list item …
