This may be related to jpg files not being saved as it seems the order of the calculation is likely to to be the issue. I have a gh definition that runs E+ 3 times with variations of the same model:
- with no heating or cooling, to report floating temperatures as a heat map - recognising the intrinsic design of the building
- with ideal loads, to produce the excellent diagnostic tool: the monthly energy balance graphic
- with a heat pump installed to provide heating and cooling: reported in a monthly total heating and cooling energy graph
These are placed in different parts of the Rhino work area. These parts then have NamedViews assigned (CamelCase with no spaces in the names). I have set up Colibri to run through 1260 design options (north Window area, level of insulation etc) - and I have identified 4 named output graphs. Earlier trials worked a treat. Now I just get the data.csv file in the specifically named output folder. While monitoring my second screen I can see the graphs are being produced, but they are not being saved as images by Colibri. It does not seem to be a problem of the order of calculation, because if it were then I would, presumably have a whole bunch of blank output png files? I had assumed that the img collection would happen just before the Colibri Fly object changed the input variables?
In working through this, the most strange behaviour has been some versions of the script, when run in single run test mode have produced EnergyBalance graphs with all the axis annotation, but none of the graphic elements (the histogram bars and the associated colour bars in the legend). This is I believe unrelated to the Colibri save issue, but it did have me wondering if there is a memory limit issue?
Thanks in anticipation
