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 when I run this it's going to prompt me for select an object and we have another error here and that's because it's still trying to run these two functions that have my base point in them so I'm just gonna comment those out really quickly. So I'm gonna select my object. When I select this object it prints out the object ID, which isn't entirely helpful for us right now, but it will be helpful for us later when we wanna do things with this object.
