Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Orienting extruded forms, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Narrator] Last video, we looked at … setting up some components to extrude … our two-dimensional drawing into a 3D, … closed solid form. … I'm continuing it right where I left off, … so what I'd like to do here is, … to take my 3D extrusion and flip its orientation … and move it away from my two-dimensional drawing. … So right now this is right one top … of my two-dimensional drawing, … you can't even see it right now as a matter of fact … and if we were to turn on some of those dimensions … we set up in earlier videos, it would be really hard to see, … so it's just not working where it's oriented right now. … So let's go into Grasshopper, … let's pull in an orient component, … that's going to take as its input a base geometry, … a source plane, and a target plane, … so the base geometry is going to come out of that cap component … and we can disable preview on the cap for now. … The source plane is going to be the plane … that we set all the way back in our shelf parameter … so let's grab that. …
