Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Making X motion vectors, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- In the last video, we took a look at how … our data stream is flowing and that'll help us … out towards our goal, of laying out an array of … three dimensional panels on the XY … coordinate plane, for CNC routing. … So in this video, I'm continuing where I left off … so my goal here is to use this offset information … to build a set of motion vectors that I can use … to move all those three dimensional panels … into the right locations so that they're … not all sitting right on top of … each other like they are right now. … That's of course really not useful to us at all. … So let's get started, I'm going to bring … up a vector XYZ component. … And we'll plug in the output of the shift … list component from the calculated X offsets group. … And that's going to be making the … X component of our motion vectors. … For now I'm going to leave the Y input and the Z input … of this vector XYZ component at zero. … Later on we'll build in some additional steps … to calculate Y offsets for all these panels …
