Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning offsets, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, … we took a look at adding some offsets … to each one of our Voronoi cells. … And in this video, I'd like to add one preliminary step … before we do that offset, … where we can add some spacing in between each of the cells … and that'll just make things easier … as we work through adding dimensions, … and to help us to see what's going on a little bit better. … What I'd like to do here is to add in a move component, … and to take that geometry … coming out of that geometry component, and move it. … Let's plug in that geometry to the MOOS geometry input. … Now to move it, we need to give it a motion vector, … so a distance and a direction to move in. … And so to figure out that vector, … let's first add in a scale component, … and we'll basically make a scaled-up copy … of our Voronoi diagram geometry. … That scale component also takes a center of scaling, … which we can just leave at the default, … zero zero zero, as well as a scale factor, so right now, …
