Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing complex definitions with clusters, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, … we looked at adding named views, … or basically location bookmarks on our canvas, … to help us navigate a complex definition in Grasshopper. … In this video, we'll look at another technique, … we're working with big definitions, … and that is using a technique called clustering. … So I'm continuing right where I left off in the last video. … Clustering is a way for us … to take multiple components in Grasshopper, … and basically condense them into one sort of mega component. … So looking at my definition here, … I might want to take all of this stuff that's leading up to … the part where I'm drawing out … the two dimensional spline profiles, … so that's where I'm essentially making the 2D drawing … that I can see here in Rhino. … What I'd like to do is select all of this stuff, … that's in between that spline profile's group, … and this cell pattern input group. … So selecting all those objects, … I'm going to right-click on the canvas and select cluster, …
