'1. Solution exception:Could not find a part of the path' for daylight simulation

Hi all, I get the following error on my daylight simulation.

Warning: Roughness values above .2 is uncommon.
Warning: Roughness values above .2 is uncommon.
Runtime error (DirectoryNotFoundException): Could not find a part of the path ‘C:\Radiance\mySimulations\room_640\annual_daylight_logs_\logs.log’.

I found out it might be because of version/compatibility issues, So I re installed new version of ladybug tools and Radiance based on the compatibility matrix:

But I still get this error.
You can find my GH definition here:

update: I disconnected the ‘HB Recipe Settings’ component and part of the simulation is done, but still it has problems with the annual calculations:

Runtime error (PythonException): The recipe failed to run with the following summary:

This progress looks : ( because there were failed tasks

Hi @Nimafo,

I solved the first part by removing the single backslash in the end of the folder path provided to HB Recipe Settings. This should work: “C:\Radiance\mySimulations\640”. @chris, a double backslash ending will create the folder “640”. Maybe there should be a check for single backslash endings?

The seconds part is because of the _thresholds_ input in HB Annual Daylight. Your input is “-t 300 -lt 300 -up 3000”. It should be “-t 300 -lt 300 -ut 3000”.

SInce you are creating the room from faces only, you probably also want to use LB Generate Point Grid by connecting the floor surface rather than HB Sensor Grid from Rooms. I have a feeling this is not the grid you want:



Hi @mikkel,
Thanks a lot!

Thanks for pointing this out, @mikkel . I just pushed a change that will strip out this extra backslash if it is found:

Thanks for reporting the issue, @Nimafo !
