Orient to Camera

Component Index > Ladybug > 5 | Extra > Orient to Camera

Use this component to generate a plane that is oriented perpendicular to the active Rhino viewport camera direction and centered at an input _initPosition point.
This is useful for orienting geometry Grasshopper to the Rhino viewport camera, which may help in presenting certain Ladybug visualizations in Rhino.
Connect a Grasshopper "Timer" component to the refresh_ input of this component in order to get a real time update of the oriented plane based on the Rhino viewport camera direction.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_initPosition_initPositionA point or list of points that will act as the origin9s0 of the plane(s) that will be generated.Goo
refresh_refresh_Connect either a Grasshopper "button" component that will allow you to refresh the plane orientation upon hitting the button or a Grasshopper "Timer" component to see the plane update in real time as you navigate through the Rhino viewport.Goo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
orientedToCamorientedToCamA plane (or list of planes) for each _initPosition connected. All planes are oriented perpendicular to the active Rhino viewport camera direction and are centered at initPosition points.Goo
