Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Outlining an algorithm, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] Alright so we've spent the last few videos … going over some of the key components of the design … of our voronoi pattern shelf. … And in this video, … I'd like to jump into grasshopper … and start to map out an algorithm … that we can use to define our shelf. … And the goal here is kind of two-fold. … One, it's to let grasshopper start to take care of … a lot of those little tedious steps, … like making splines and doing offsets and things like that, … and two, … it's to make sort of a generalized definition … of our shelf form. … And that's going to allow us to change different things. … Say maybe we want it to be taller or shorter. … Through grasshopper, … we can build in that flexibility … while still maintaining those key design elements … that we've covered in the last few videos. … So in grasshopper, … what I like to do … when I'm first starting a grasshopper definition … is just give myself some text notes that break down … the most important parts of the algorithm. …
