Drawing Lines and Curves Using Code

7m 49s

In this course, David Tracy will teach you how to use the Python programming language with Rhino to automate tasks, create complex forms, and simulate physical phenomena. This course will serve as a gentle introduction to programming to unlock capabilities for generative computational design with Rhino, Python, and Grasshopper.

First, you will be introduced to the core concepts of using Python in Rhino, such as drawing shapes with code, transformation, and variables. Then you will learn how to use classes and object oriented programming. Finally, you will learn how to integrate Grasshopper into your Python and Rhino workflow.

When we’re done, you will understand the core concepts of programming with Python, be able to author your own scripts, and create custom components in Grasshopper.

So, we're going to just accept the default argument of degree three for our curve, and now we're gonna run our function. So, what the get points method does is it prompts me to specify a series of points on the screen and it's storing them in a list which we're calling points and points is then used by this add curve function. So, I can run that again.
