Change m in mm - natural ventilation, set ep air flow

energy

#1

Hey,

the component “Set EP Air Flow” is giving me this:

The Window dimensions are very wrong (1380 m?). Maybe it’s because I created the model in millimeters?

Thanks! :slight_smile:


#2

For energy simulations the model MUST be in meters.

Thank you very much for your answer!

@AbrahamYezioro 's comment is historically correct and we still recommend that everyone use meters by default since E+ runs in meters and building Rhino models in meters makes everything run much faster by saving Honeybee from the need to do extra scaling operations.

However, for a little over a year now, we have supported the use of all major units systems (ft, in, mm, cm) for those times when people face a lot of struggles working in meters (*cough U.S. offices *cough). So what you have found here @adriancasadecampo is technically a bug. It seems that we forgot to update this property when we made the transition to supporting more units system.

Thanks for finding it and I just pushed a fix to the github:

No that i’m going to change habits but good to know/remember @chris.
Thanks,

I already changed my model now, but good to know!

Thanks for your help, @AbrahamYezioro and @chris!
