I’m working on a project based on kinetic PV facade and I couldn’t allocate the material properties for the shade component. Currently, it’s an opaque material and I need to change it to glass material. In the latest version, I have used the ‘Shade Construction’ component but it has only solar reflection factor instead of SHGC and U factor values. However, the aperture material has an option to change these properties. Is there any way to allocate these values in the shade component?
Any help would be really appreciated.
Yes. Use the
ep_trans_sch_ input that you see in your screenshot to set the transparency of the shade object.
Thanks Chris. It’s working now.
