Can I set multiple cpus in Honeybee[+] for grid-based daylight simulations?

#1

I could not find an answer to this simple question: I want to run a point-in-time illuminance simulation and was looking for an input to set the number of threads. Is this possible in HB[+] ?

#2

If you use Windows it´s not possible, you can use more CPu´s in Linux, but you will need to add -n to your command. That´s simple Radiance on Windows

Thanks for your reply. So then the -n command cannot be used in Windows with HB[+], right?

#4

nope Windows Radiance is not capable of that. You know " A computer is like an Air conditioning- it becomes useless when you open Windows"

I’m glad i re-asked to make sure, because that Windows quote was perfect :slight_smile:
