### Orient surfaces (and curves on it)16 Replies

Hi everyone,I need to orient a list of surface on a horizontal plane. Each surface "contains" lines (from 1 to 20 lines for each surface) which are drawn on it.I would like to orient all the lines…Continue

### List of list of items9 Replies

Hi everybody,I would like to create a list of list of surfaces on grasshopper. Indeed i have 9 surfaces (let's call them surface 9 to 8) done on rhino and i would like to order them in a list…Continue

"Thank you for the reply and confirmation Michael. As a beginner, a lot of times, I get confused when this "assumed" solutions were you used. But I guess I will get used to it, during time. Thank you once again."

"looks good to me, I think grasshopper always assumes origin (0,0,0) unless we instruct it otherwise."

"@ Michael Pryor: About the points:I think I am starting to understand the way they were used: For the horizontal circles, a point was used as an origin of the XY plane. And this is what grasshopper always does, if we do not address a specific plane…"

"Thank you for the help Michael.I think I am starting to understand.Again, an usual problem emerges: As an architect I do not think of this in terms of the data matching and the data flow. Which is exactly the core of the solution in this case, and…"

"as far as why points, points can be used also as a plane(xy) as well as vectors to. see screenshot. "
Jul 25, 2012
"basically we need the points to test which curves are on which surface (look at the data structures) we get a point from the curve (can be any point. We pull every point to every surface, then we test if the pulled point equals the original point,…"
Jul 25, 2012
"Thank you for the reply Michael.But now I am even more confused. I want to understand the solution. Why do we need to convert these curves from "Curve" parameter into the points on the surface (closest point on the surface) and then input…"

"yeep, you are right, thats much smarter. Thank you Michael.   Best regards   Peter"
Jul 25, 2012
"To simplify Peters, you can just use equals, also you can test just one point for landing on a surface and then cull the data tree of the curves, rather than making new lines. "
Jul 25, 2012
"Peter can I dare to bother you a bit more? I am very interested in your solution and I am trying to understand it. Why can't we just plug in the "Curve" parameter directly into the second "Orient" component?Why do we need…"

"Hi Axel. I saw your reply in here about the orient surface. Can I ask you for a favor? Can you please save the OrientInGroups.3dm file that Peter Cluck provided, as Rhino 4 3D Models file (File-> Save as)? And send it too me…"

"Thank you so much for your help Peter: indeed making a test on the begin and the end of the curves work very well. Regards. Axek"

"Peter can I ask you for a favor? Can you please save this OrientInGroups.3dm file as Rhino 4 3D Models file (File-> Save as)? You seem to be using Rhino 5, and Rhino 5 files can not be opened in Rhino 4. Thank you."

Can you please save the OrientInGroups.3dm file that Peter Cluck provided, as Rhino 4 3D Models file (File-> Save as)?
