Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Orienting a flat panel layout, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, … we worked on constructing a base plane … for each of our panel parts … and in this video we're going to use that … base plane information to orient … all of our panels flat … and that'll be something that's crucial … for taking our design through a step … like CNC routing. … So let's go ahead and bring up an orient component. … We're going to use that to take each one … of these individual panel sides here … and lay them out flat. … So the orient component takes in a base geometry … and that's the thing that's going to get oriented. … It takes in a source plane, … so that's kind of the reference point. … And it takes in a target plane … and that's where we would want … the orientation to go to. … So here our geometry is going to flow … out of an earlier step where we … orient and rotate the whole extruded shelf, … so I'm taking the output of that move component … and that's going to plug into our geometry input. … Now the base plane is the plane … that we just figured out in the last video, …
