3d Result Visualization

Hi Abraham,

ok cool, attached file is the GH file…thx for your help!!!


I have to say that neither of us is right.

First of all the calculations are ok. The results of course change depending on the location of the test points (see attached). I’m showing there the defaults mesh results. You can see clearly that the results make sense.

The weird think happens on the visualization part (option 2 in your file). I guess the remapping or the range, or … something else there is reassigning the original (good) results to the new mesh. Check this and if you find why this is happening do tell.

thx Abraham!

Unfortunately i was not able to fix it…i tried to make a new definition with interpolation but it is getting complicating here…

thx once again, i will keep trying


Hallo Abraham,

can you please check for me why the isolines are not working with me :frowning: …i am not able to fix it

thanks for your understanding and your support!


Hi nass, I replied to this question under the other discussion: http://www.grasshopper3d.com/xn/detail/2985220:Comment:1324246

Hi everyone,

Thank you for a very interesting discussion!

I have a question to ask about how to display results in lines on countour planes. What I am asking is a bit different than what is achieved in this example I believe. Instead of visualizing the results from one plane (e.g. ground) to a 3D style I want to visualize the countour lines of different lux/DF values on the same plane that they were calculated.

What I want to achieve is a kind of volumetric daylighting analysis. I have a series of parallel contour planes, vertical to the ground surface, and I want to loft the countour lines of different levels between them in order to create volumetric boundaries of specific DF/Lux levels.

I am trying for a bit with definition close to this one, but I don’t think I am getting it right. Is this possible with this file? Or anyone has an example with any file for this?

Thanks so much in advance!

Kind regards,


Hi Theodore,

Current definition has what you need to create the case. You only need to make sure you data structure is put correctly so curved for the same value will be loft together. The result should be an interesting graph.


That is excellent thanks!

Will play around with it then in the afternoon. Will post results when I have them :slight_smile:
