Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Locating spline corners, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Narrator] In the last video, we did some work towards … our step of drawing out spline profiles in our algorithm. … In this video, we'll continue with that step and … work towards finding the corners of the spline profiles. … In Rhino, we've got a blank Rhino file open and … I've made that using the small objects centimeters template. … In Grasshopper, I have spline width end.gh open. … We are just continuing from where we … left off in the last video. … What I like to do is, take these lines that are being … offset from our corner lines on the voronoi cell pattern. … Sample out a couple of points from each one. … Use those to frame out the little rectangles … that we will be drawing for the spline profiles. … Let's jump into Grasshopper, and a great component … for this is the evaluate length component. … This takes in a curve and gives us … specific points along that curve at given length. … So in turns of inputs, this components taking in … a curve or a set of curves to evaluate a length to give …
