Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up spline width controls, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video we did a little bit … of work in this step of our algorithm, … where we're drawing out spline profiles. … So in this video we'll go a little further … with that step. … So just to review here in Grasshopper … we set up a few components in the last video, … that are going to allow us to offset … each one of those corner lines, … in our voronoi cell pattern. … And that's going to help us to figure out the width … of our spline profile, … which eventually are going to be rectangular shapes … that run perpendicular to these corner lines. … So to do a little housekeeping here … in our grasshopper definition, … first I'd like to take this slider … and rename this to something more descriptive. … So I'll call this spline width. … And let's take that over and add … it in with our shelf parameters. … Oops I can see a little typo there. … So keeping that slider selected, … I'll just right-click on that self parameters group … and select add to group, … and that just keep all our controls nice and organized. …
