Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Measuring panels, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- In the last video, … we looked at getting our data stream ready … to lay out our 3D panels in a flat array … that'll make it really easy to send to a CNC router. … So in this video I want to continue on in that process … by measuring each one of the panels … and adding in a spacing factor … so that we know how far to move them around. … To Grasshopper, I'm going to bring up a Bounding Box component … and this is what we use to help us measure … the size of each panel. … To the content input, … this is going to flow out of the partition output … that we set up in the last video. … So now we get a bounding box for each panel. … And we can feed that into a Deconstruct Box component. … So that's going to give us the base plane, … an X domain, a Y domain, and a Z domain … for each of those individual panels. … Then using a Deconstruct Domain component, … feed in that X domain, … that'll give us a start and an end … for the X dimension of each panel. … And finally, let's bring in an Addition component, …
