## Arrays in PARAM-O

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello guys, im having a little fun with the new PARAM-O, and it looks awesome! But I need now to make an array with variable amount of itens along the total dimension of my object (objects must have fixed space between them). Am I missing something or this is impossible in the current state of PARAM-O? If so, will it be ever added? This is a MUST for more complex parametric objects.

I can see a "List Inputs" group of Nodes, which includes Integer Series, Number Series, Random Series, and Number Distribution. I don't know exactly what you want to do, but you may be able to achieve it with one of the above four Nodes.
From your description, you may be looking for the "Number Distribution" Node.

Yes, looking in the reference for the nodes, i guess the "Number Series" would be more what I'm looking for. But it's not there yet. Though these node act like arrays, how can i use them to multiply a single "Block" node multiple times?

Something like this?

Exactly!!! So the array function IS there! But with a different name and kind of hidden in the nodes. There's nothing indicating (not even in the reference guide) that a List Input connected to a Move transform and then connected to a block would result in multiple copies of the block. But here is the answer! Many thanks my friend.
I looked at the examples on the GRAPHISOFT site. They can give some ideas on how to do things, even if it is in the form of screenshots:

Hi Laszlo,
I am also exploring Param-o. It is way more impressive than I thought.
I can see lots of potential. Specially for creating small GDL objects for CW and Railings.
But I think it lacks of some more practical tutorials or a more detailed documentation.
I would also like to know if there is any function that allows us to create custom user inputs on Floorplan or 3d. Like a path defined with a series of points. Or perhaps some source of Hotspots

Yes, I agree, I will forward this to GRAPHISOFT.

I don't think there is such an input mechanism currently, but it is a great idea, just like we have such inputs in Grasshopper, we could have such inputs in Param-O, which would greatly extend its capabilities. I have an inkling the developers already thought about this, but I will forward this suggestion to them anyway.

Yeah, hotspots like in other gdl objects or complex profile would be great.
