I want to know about usefulness of scripts

Hi,there
I started to learn python script.
I want to know usefulness of scripts at grasshopper.
What advantages do you make to creat scripts,and what scripts is suitable for rhino and grasshopper?
I am sorry for the vague question, but I would like to know what I can do to use scripts .

thank you.

Short answer is: Everything.

With scripts you can do (almost) everything. I wouldn’t try to toast bread using a script though. :slight_smile:

I don’t see why you wouldn’t

I would estimate that 75% of our process relies on custom scripts I’ve written over the last 17 years.

I am more or less at your position. I just started learning c# and my reason was that there were things I wanted to do that required 100’s of components and took forever to compute while other guys that used code could do it in minutes with a few lines of code and it run much much faster.
It depends of course on what your job is and what you want to achieve but in most cases the time investment is worth it.
In my mind, if you are in it for the long run, it’s a non-dilemma
