Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Locating panel base points, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Teacher] Over the last chapter … we did a lot of work setting up a panel array … of each of the individual 3D parts … that make up our overall form. … So in this video and over the next couple of videos … we'll tackle labeling each of those individual parts. … So I'm continuing where I left off from the last video. … As you can see, I've got all of my … individual panels laid out here in Rhino, … and although each one is unique, they look very similar. … So if we try to feed these to a CNC router … and ended up with a big pile of panels … cut out of wood or some other material … we would really be up a creek. … We would not be able to know which ones go where … and how to assemble our overall form, … so really important that we label these … and that during that fabrication process … we carve the labels into each panel … so we know where each one goes. … So let's start to do that work of adding labels … to each of the 3D panels. … So in Rhino, really quick I'll switch to … one of my side views, either the front or the right, …
