Hi all, I wonder if someone might be able to direct me to some ‘best practices’ for using Grasshopper’s Make2D tools? I can’t seem to sort out the right way to utilize them and I wonder if there is guide or something that walks though the right way to set those up?
I like the Make2D line-control very much, and I’d love to be able to use it in more outputs. I wonder if there is a ‘right’ way to get those lines to show/align in a Layout and DetailView?
for instance, if I have a very simple mass, and I do the Make2D, that’s all good, but I don’t understand how to get that linework to show properly in a Layout DetailView?
I was experimenting with grabbing the DetailView’s Transform and applying that to the linework in order to get the geometry aligned to the page, but I can’t seem to make that work? If I find and apply the WorldToPage transform, as well as the Page’s Scale factor, I can get the right geometry
buts its way off in a location that I don’t understand?
I must be misunderstanding something here or doing something incorrect - but I can’t seem to figure out what? If anyone might be able to point me in the right direction, I would very much appreciate it. I would just like to be able to use those Grasshopper Make2D components to create linework in a DetailView - seems like that should be possible, no?
thanks so much for any thoughts, example gh file attached.
