Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Offsetting corner lines, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Narrator] In this video, … we'll start to tackle the next major step in our algorithm, … and that is to draw out the spline profiles. … So in grasshopper here, … I'm just going to grab this panel … that has the note of the step … that I am going to be working on, … and let's drag that down. … Kind of below this last one … that we finished off of drawing … the trapezoidal panel profiles. … So what we're going for here … is to draw the spline profiles … and if you remember from an earlier video, … those are the rectangles … that are centered on each of the corner lines … and perpendicular to each one of the corner lines. … So, probably a good place to start … in terms of drawing those, … is to offset some of those corner lines. … So those are coming out of this line component here. … And actually while I'm at it here … I can click here and disable preview. … So let's pull up an offset curve component. … Let's bring in those lines … to the curve list input. … Now, offset also asks for a distance. …
