Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Extruding 3D forms, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video we finished up the … labeling and dimensioning steps of our algorithm … by adding angle dimensions to each one … of our trapezoidal panel profiles. … I'm continuing right where I left off. … So, zooming out here in Grasshopper you can track … up to the right-hand corner of my definition and see … the last few steps that we need to … take care of in our algorithm here. … So, the next one I'm going to take care of is … working on extruding the profiles into a 3D form. … I'm going to drag that down closer to this step … where we're subtracting the … spline profiles from the shelf profiles, … and that will give us a good space … to work on those next steps. … While I'm at it here, … I'm going to right click, … and disable preview on all my dimensions. … I don't need those right now, … and there just going to be a little bit distracting. … To make it a little easier to work with, … let's just turn off all of those dimensions. … Let's see, I think I can also go ahead …
