Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learning Algorithmic Design with Grasshopper.
- [Instructor] If you're a premium member of the Lynda.com library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. These files can be found in the Exercise Files tab on the main course page. The files are organized into main folders for each chapter. Most often, the exercise files will have the extension .gh like these ones. These are files that you should open in Grasshopper. Some examples use both a Grasshopper file and a Rhino file which will have the extension .3dm. These files should be opened at the same time, and I'll let you know when that needs to happen. In the videos, I'll walk you through how to set up the files and save on an end state at the end. You can check the end states to see exactly what we covered. If you don't have access to the exercise files, you can follow along from Scratch as I walk through each example. And the videos will more or less go from start to finish. Let's get started.
