algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Tags:
Sameer,
thanks for your explanation!
David,
thanks for your further specification!
I am beginning to use the software and I have a question about the Path Mapper.
In the very first Path Mapper (image on top) of Sameer's definition he used:
{A;B} (i) > {A} (i)
Let's suppose that you have 5 curves selected in your definition. So you will have:
- Data with 5 Branches
- N=11 (as default value from Divide Curve)
- data structure (0;0) (0;1).....(0;4)
Here the question: WHY?? the points coming out from this Path Mapper belong to the fifth curve (and not the fourth, the third...etc.)?
Thanks a lot!
If you import 5 curves from Rhino, you'll most likely only have a single branch with 5 items in it: {0}(N = 5)
When you then run these curves through a Divide Curve component, you'll get 5 branches, where each branch contains all the points generated by dividing each curve, so if you divide into 10 segments, you'll get:
{0;0}(N = 11)
{0;1}(N = 11)
{0;2}(N = 11)
{0;3}(N = 11)
{0;4}(N = 11)
Where the second integer in the curly brackets refers back to the index of the curve in the original list.
Another way to look at this data is to see it as a table. It's got 5 rows (one for each original curve) and 11 columns, where every column contains a specific division point.

Thanks David for your fast and precise reply!! :)
I try to explain my question better.
1. I have my 5 curves running through a Divide Curve component. So I will have the data structure you wrote:
{0;0} (N=11)
{0;1} (N=11)
{0;2}(N = 11)
{0;3}(N = 11)
{0;4}(N = 11)
2. I run the Points that are coming out from the Divide Curve Components through the Path Mapper components with this definition:
{A;B} (i) > {A} (i)
3. I run data coming out from Path Mapper component through:
a) Parameter Viewer component and the result is:
{0} N=11 (data with 1 branches)
b) Point > Panel and the result is:
collection of 11 point (N=11) which is the exactly the same as the collection of point belonging to {0;4} (N = 11).
So, here is the question:
why the collection of points coming out from the Path Mapper {A;B} (i) > {A} (i) component is the same as the collection of points belonging to the curve {0;4}(N = 11) ?
Anyway ... It 's the first time I ask a question here... so I would like to thank you for what you do with your work! Thank you! You are really great!
