Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Generating a dynamic Voronoi diagram, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, we looked at some … of the basic properties of the Voronoi Diagram component … in Grasshopper. … In this video, I'd like to go a little bit further … and do some setup that's going to help us out later on … as we move through our algorithm. … So in Grasshopper, I've got … the file voronoiexploreend.gh open. … And in Rhino, I just have a blank file. … I happen to be using the small objects centimeters template … but you can use whatever units you like. … And where we left off, we had set up … our Voronoi Diagram component, feeding in a set of points, … as well as a rectangle to specify the boundary. … Now you'll notice in Grasshopper, we've got some points … that are outside of the boundary … and those are no longer part of the Voronoi Diagram … that we're laying out. … So those points aren't really helping us much. … And it would certainly be fine to manually lay out points. … For me, that's pretty tedious and not quite as flexible … as I'd like in terms of building out our algorithm …
