Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Grouping points in space, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, … we took some steps to manage our data stream, … and those are going to be crucial for us … to be able to start drawing out our spline profiles, … and basically have access to the groups of points … that we want to define those rectangular shapes. … So in this video, we'll do the next couple steps … on that front. … Here in Grasshopper we left off using … the Shift Paths component to essentially group together … all of the points that are inside … each of our voronoi cell shapes. … And in this video, we'll take some steps … to search through that list of points … and make sure that we're grouping them based on … where they are in space. … And there's a component that's actually perfect for this … called the Closest Points component, … and this finds the closest points in a point collection. … So this takes as its input, the point to search from, … the cloud of points to search … and a number of closest points to find. … Now, we know for sure the cloud of points to search …
