I created different radmaterials and created a new construction and realized that if I directly decompose the material I do not get any Values back. Only when I add it to the custom contruction libary, I can get values out of the decompose construction.
Is that intended?
I think it’s because the component is asking for the name of the construction, and not the construction itself
But it might not even be the case, since the name is just a string in that model, and do not refer to anything else in any other files.
May I ask why that would be interesting?
we first had the problem that we would like to know the U-Value of our current construction and we didnt get any results. After further investigation i found out that adding it to the libary gives me results.
I just think it is a bit weird, that you first have to add the construction to the libary to get R and U-Value results instead of direct results from the current created construction, right? This why I am asking if this is intended or maybe a bug.
I don’t know if it’s a bug or intended…
A way around would be to make a custom block with the formulas from here
But the best would be to use the new ladybugTools, it’s actually doing what you’re looking for !
True, I definitly need to do that. I am still working on Rhino 5 with the old ones, but I think I can upgrade to Rhino 6
Appreciate the answers!
