Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Sorting profile edges, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video we did some work … towards our goal of drawing trapezoidal panel profiles. … And what we did was to separate out the corner lines … as well as the interior and the exterior lines … as individual lines and not joined polycurves. … So in this video what we need to do … is join those up together … into their corresponding trapezoid edge neighbors. … Before we go any further in Grasshopper … I'd like to make one little change to our input. … And that is to switch out from our dynamic cell pattern … where we're looking at a big group of Voronoi cells … to just one individual cell. … So I'm going to take this output … coming out of the static cell pattern group … and plug it into our input. … So now we're just looking at one cell at a time, … and this will just make things a little bit simpler … to think through as we work on the rest of this definition. … So looking at this cell, … I can see I have several different trapezoidal shapes, … one corresponding to each edge. …
