Hello everyone. I am working on my master thesis now. I have to create a set of sun shaders for windows to minimize summer radiation and maximize winter radiation. For this i calculate the sun vector angles by using ladybug. I am trying to set sun shaders with some paramaters like number of shaders, direction of shader (vertical, horizontal and combination of both), shading angle. Then i will try to optimize all of them to to minimize summer radiation and maximize winter radiation. I will try to find best solutions with octopus.
My questions are:
How can i create these sun shaders. Is it possible to done this with sun_shades_calculator?
How can i optimize these parameters with octopus?
Is it possible with sun_shades_calculator to use vertical surfaces not the horizontal ones? Or is it always create horizontal surfaces or pergolas? Can we create a third option?
Thank you very much.
