Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Rotating text labels, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, … we spent some time creating labels … for each of our individual panel profiles … of each one or so, in a pattern here. … Now in this video, … I'd like to go a little bit further … with that part of the definition, … by rotating the labels … so that they line up with the orientation … of each individual panel. … So, let's think through how we'd like to rotate … all these labels. … You can see, some of these line up pretty well, … like these ones that are almost horizontal, … but, it's pretty messy, it's a little bit hard to see. … What I'd like to have happen, … is for the label to line up with the angle of each panel. … So let's take a look at our definition here. … And where I can start to build in some rotation, … is in the location input of this text tag 3D. … So let's pull up a rotate plane component. … And this's going to let us take … the polygon center, … that right now is giving us the center point, … of each of those panel profiles, … and basically rotate it. …
