1st day at Grasshopper, orientation question


First day, simple problem but I can’t figure out… I’ve created a grid of points, from each point I’ve created a rectangle, I want to 90° rotate the rectangles. I’ve tried a few approaches but each time the complete grid rotates not the individual rectangles. Can someone help me out? Thanks!

Hi and welcome to Grasshopper.

Please, internalize your data:

I think you didn’t upload the correct file, or you uploaded it before saving. (there is no grid or orientation inside)

Hi and welcome,

You can also create a rectangular grid and then rotate the cells - try this to get you started:

good luck hopping the grass

Thanks guys, appreciate it. I am attaching the file again plus screenshot.
The grid is driven by geometry and I’ve tried to add @corellaman explode component but got stuck again. Any hints?

easy, just copy from the other script into yours and replace like this:

do graft the output of your rectangle component

ah! I only tried to add the explode component before the rectangle… awesome! Thanks.
