Thanks in advance, I’m relatively new to Grasshopper.
My goal is to create a definition to aid me in the layup (or stacking) of several pieces of hard wood. Currently, I don’t know the thickness of these boards, they could be anywhere from 1.5"-1.75". I wanted to use Grashopper to create an array to represent a stack of boards that will add up to a final length of 25." Since I do not yet know the thicknesses of my boards, the goal is to create an array that would change the spacing of the members of the array based on the final board thickness (which I won’t know until I plane my material in several weeks.)
My first attempt involved creating a linear array where I set the base geometry (a line that represents one board in the stack) and the direction (in this case the Y direction.) I attempted to create the “count” by dividing the length of one side of my final stack (25") by a number slider from 0<1.75 (the slider representing the thickness of each board.) However, as you can see, the spacing between the lines in the array remains the same and only the count changes.
I’m using Grasshopper and Rhino 5 for Windows.
How best should I proceed?
