Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating named views, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, … we did a few basic organizational steps … that make our algorithm both functional and easy to use. … And we can leave it as it is … and it'll work just fine … but in this next video, … I'd like to explore a couple of organizational options … that can help us work through complex definitions like this. … You've probably noticed as we've gone through … the different stages of building up our definition, … we're often jumping around from one set of components … to another, … going from different parts of the definition, … you know, having to do a lot of sliding back and forth. … So one really easy tool to help us get around … that extra work is to use something called … a named view. … So in our Grasshopper viewport, … let's zoom in to where we have all of our slider inputs. … This is probably a place I'll come back to often … as I want to make updates to my design, … change things such as the number of cells, … the number of panels, … the layout and things like that. …
