Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating spline joints, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- Over the last couple of videos we've covered … some key concepts that we'll need … to keep in mind as we work on our design. … Starting with this two-dimensional Voronoi cell pattern … and translating it into a three-dimensional extrusion. … Where we left off in the last video, … we were talking about dividing up each … of the cells into a set of flat panels, … which we could then assemble. … If I go to my Layers Panel here, … turn off this Voronoi Pattern layer, … and maximize the Front view port, … we can get a sense of … how that would look for three of the … cells out of the overall pattern. … So you could see each one would be divided … up into this sort of trapezoidal profile. … And if you imagine those being extruded out, … we can cut those pretty easily out of … a flat panel. … If we had enough time and skill, … we could do that on a table, … or we could feed it to something like … a 5-Axis CNC Router, which could … probably do an easier job of handling … the precision of all the intense little angles …
