I hope you do not mind my very detailed questions. But as I increasingly enjoy using Honeybee, I started to model the sunspace model from ASHRAE 140, which required a detailed control over surface constructions.
Specifically. the problem is the interzone wall between the sunspace and the back zone needs to have a construction which is not symmetrical, so than one can have control over the properties of each side of the wall. You know that, this is done in EnergyPlus by assigning two constructions to the surfaces, which have the same materials in reverse order.
So, I tried to do this by decomposing the zones to surfaces, and setting the right construction for each interzone surface, but I did not succeed. Two questions in this regard:
What is wrong in my model in using setEPSurfaceConstruct, which tells me "Solution exception:‘Brep’ object has no attribute ‘split’ "?
In general, if at some point one needs to break a zone to have surface level control, how the modified surfaces should be put back together as a zone? Is it needed to connect all zone surfaces to a createHBZones component again? If this is the case, I guess one needs to do surface level settings before changing assumptions at zone level.
