Hello all! I am using for the first time HB+ for a daylighting analysis and I don’t understand where is the mistake; it shows me this error “1. Solution exception:Found no window groups! If you do not have a window group in the scene use daylight coefficient”.

Can anyone help me? I enclose the part of the workflow for the daylighting analysis and a test box that I am using to check the algorithm.

Daylight.gh (490.6 KB)
Daylight_box.3dm (195.8 KB)

Thank you!!

Hello Fracarl,
You should use daylight coefficient recipe as this file
Daylight.gh (482.7 KB)

Thank you for your reply, unfortunately it gives me this error:

  1. Solution exception:invalid literal for float(): FORMAT=ascii

I have also updated Radiance with the latest official release (not prerelease) I found on github (5.2). Which could be the problem?

Hello! I guess i find the problem and sollution, but i do not know how to commit it to GitHub source:
C:\Users*USERNMAE*\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\scripts\honeybee\radiance\recipe\daylightcoeff\gridbased.py - this file uses ‘/scene’ and ‘result/matrix’ to create resulting files. When python tries to read path in windows, he had some problems with backslashes.
Replecing ‘/’ to ‘\\’ in “gridbased.py” helps to run sDA and ASE.
