Generating rectangle from a center point instead of a corner point while controlling distance between each rectangle


I am trying to generate an array of panels from a center point. I have found a way to do this by using a rectangular grid by using the following script:

This creates a grid of rectangle from a centre point as such:


In this case it works fine. However i want to make panels out of the grid and control the distance between the panels. I managed to do this with the following code:

This allows me to generate panels from a grid and allows me to control the size of the panels as well as the distance between them as such:

In this case however, the grid starts from a corner point. What i want is the grid to start from a center point as the first example. When i try to combine both codes it works somewhat but the panels dont seem to start from a center point (in this case (0, 0). Any idea how to solve this?

Hi @serabouch,

I guess something like this would be an overall more practical approach:

First you draw a regular rectangle grid, then you introduce the cell spacing, and after that you move the grid cells back to the origin (cf. green dot).

Hope this helps! (10.8 KB)
