Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Drawing trapezoidal profiles, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video … we looked at doing some sorting operations in our data flow … to match up all of these profile edges and corners … to draw our trapezoidal shelf profiles … and at this point we're just about ready … to merge those all together into continuous shapes. … In Grasshopper, I can go ahead and get rid of this panel. … We don't need that anymore. … And let's just do a little bit of grouping here. … So I'm going to grab this series, … move that up, and just click and drag … all those components that I created … in the last couple videos, … group those together, … and let's give this a title. … So here we are sorting out the corresponding … profile edges and diagonals. … And again, what's coming out of that merge component … are a bunch of paths … each with the four edge lines that make up … each trapezoidal profile. … So we're going to feed that into a join curves component … and what that should give us is, … in this case, seven individual trapezoidal shapes …
