Vector Math Overview

6m 16s

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 remember in our first example here we have this very basic vector one one and to make it negative we multiply both of its components by negative one. So if we wanted to subtract V2 from V1 we take the negative value of V1 and we go and we add them end to end. So first we have V1 and we're subtracting V2 from it so we go over one zero then we go down minus one minus one.
