Duplicate name of context surfaces

Hi all,

In my model, I generate context surfaces in two places. One to generate shading devices, the other to create surfaces for PV panel installation.

When running the EP simulation, I get the error duplicate name for the context surfaces. Is there any way to solve this, for example, can I create a list of unique names to assign to the list of surfaces?


It’s hard to know what is going on without your GH file. Please upload it if you can. It seems that you probably don’t need one of the copies of the context surfaces that you are plugging in.


Hi Chris,

In attachment you’ll find my GH file. It’s complex, but the context surfaces are in the shading and in the generation clusters.
