so instead of moving the slider to choose which index I want, I would like to insert something in the stream to do the selection for me, so I could have multiple offsets for different items.
So, where I have the connection labeled Offset 1, all geometry in that stream would be offset by 0.1875, but where I have offset 2, all geometry in that stream would be offset by 0.0625
I don’t know what this kind of thing should even be called, so I don’t know what to search for, but it seems like something Grasshopper should do.
Maybe I need some kind of lookup table or something?
It doesn’t have to use the list I provided, that is just an example, it could be something else that allows each stream to run with a different distance for the offset but be processed at the same time.
Put yourself in the place of those trying to help you. We have no clue other than what you tell us. Being a noob is no excuse! Did you read and search the forum before posting? This gets so very tiresome, it’s difficult to be graceful about it:
@Joseph_Oster: You make a good point, I most definitely appreciate everyone’s help on here and don’t wish to make anyone feel unappreciated.
I always search for the answers myself, and most of the time I am able figure it out, and when I post a question, I try to provide a concise example of exactly what I’m trying to accomplish instead of posting the entire project.
I admit I did not do a very good job of explaining what I was after in this post, I wasn’t precise in my details, and I also did forget to internalize my geometry, which I normally do, so I will be more careful of those things in the future. I apologize for making things frustrating.
I do however appreciate your suggestion, because it does show me another possibility that I’m sure will prove useful in the future.
