Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Sorting and searching Brep Components, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Teacher] In the last video we finished up … orienting and rotating the 3D extruded version … of our shelf design and that wrapped up … this entire step of our algorithm … where we extrude our 2D profiles into a 3-dimensional form. … So we're going to continue on to the next step … in our algorithm in this video. … I'm going to zoom out here in Grasshopper. … Let's take a look up here in the top right … of our definition. … I've got the last two step of our algorithm … that we need to take care of, … so I'm just going to take that one, … scooch it down to where we were working earlier. … What we need to work out over the next several videos … is making a flat array of labeled 3D panels for CNC routing. … Let's think about what we're asking for here. … If we think about cutting the parts for this form … on a CNC router we really couldn't feed in … the whole assembled form. … We would need to take each individual panel, … flatten it out on some sort of a base, … as it would sit on the machine as it's getting fabricated. …
