Could dielectric material be created in Honeybee-radiance?

Hi everyone!

I am trying to create a custom material in Honeybee-radiance for daylight simulation. But I did not see a component for dielectric material. Does the HB glass modifier work for this situation?

Thanks a lot!

Can you share the material definition that you are trying to work with? The baseclass is implemented in honeybee-radiance.

In theory, you should be able to pass the string to this class using the from_string classmethod, but I have never used it myself.

I did a quick test, and it worked! You can use the output of this component like any other honeybee modifier/material. (3.7 KB)
