Trying to create a 2d pattern.  I create a new library pattern and make it 4x4.  I can see the points.  I try and make line segments and nothing happens.  I just defaults to the lower left point and when I try and click any other point it does not create a line segment... I must be doing something wrong?  Watched multiple videos and downloaded the manual... can't seem to figure it out.

TIA

Its totally ok for now since i have a pinup coming soon and i need to finish my elevation somehow.

So what is your primary source of training on Grasshopper scripting. Coz even though you said youre not good you did it real fast.

For the baking bit i need to create a surface then bake the parameter that is orange i colour?

yes, there are some sliders at the left of the GH canvas, you can change the size of the panel on the weight&heigh controlers, (i used cm), also you can change the Hex_size, offset and the fade factor.

when you are finish and get the desire result, just bake the last parameter into the layer you want. it's not quite the model you have on the img, i made an oval pattern for the fade and on the img you show it's little more irregular, but it's pretty close.

hahahaha nice one bro...thats amazing. youve cracked it in 30 minutes yet ive been trying to work on it for the last 1 week to n avail. so if i want to have it on an 8m high panel i could project it to a panel then scale it up. right?

I also would like to know whether its possible to alter the size of the hexagons

and has modelab been your primary source of information when learning Grasshopper?

you can change the elipse un any curve shape you want for the Hex_radius fade
