Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Curve Boolean operations, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video we finished up one … of our major steps in our algorithm of drawing out … the spline profile. … Those are the little rectangular shapes perpendicular … to each of the diagonal corners in our Voronoi diagram. … That's going to allow us to go ahead to the next major step. … So, zooming out a little bit here in Grasshopper. … We can track back to those, kind of, outline algorithm notes … that I setup for myself earlier. … I can grab this next step. … So that is going to be to subtract the spline profiles … from the shelf profiles. … We're going to take those rectangular profiles coming out … of the rectangle three-point component … and subtract them from the, kind of, trapezoidal edge shapes … that are coming out of the join component. … So, there's a great component in Grasshopper … that can take care of this for us … and that's called the Region Difference. … This acts similar to a command that you might … be familiar with from Rhino the Curve Boolean command. …
