Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Spacing panels in the Y dimension, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] In the last video, we worked on calculating … Y offsets to make our panel array … of all of our three dimensional panels. … That's going to be a great step towards … getting these cut on a CNC router. … In this video, I'm continuing where I left off. … What I'd like to work on in this video is adding … a little bit of a spacing factor in between each of my rows, … so that they're not butting right up against one another. … In Grasshopper, a pretty reasonable place to start … would be to make a number slider. … Let's start it at zero and maybe take it up to, … oh I don't know, something like 25 should be plenty. … Let's think through exactly how we need the spacing factor … to get applied to our panel array here. … Now think about it. … The first row, I don't actually want the spacing. … I'd like that array just on the origin. … The second row, I would apply the spacing factor. … Let's say in this case it's five, right? … So that first row would get bumped down five units. …
