in my opinion you have to discretize the surface directly, if you want to get responses from point E+. You can do it parametrically, of course. On the other hand, if you are only interested in radiation then you can use LBT.
Thanks for the reply!
Would you mind explaining a bit more about ‘discretizing the surface directly’? I am not familiar with that process.
In other simulation software (i.e. for finite element analysis) we have something called the meshing process
Not sure if ladybug/ honeybee has some kind of similar feature.
Or at least make a grid on various surfaces
The case above I created directly with IDF Editor by setting as solar distribution FullInteriorAndExteriorWithReflections having other glazed walls next to it and balconies with medium/clear paved surface.
In addition, the glazing and its response as a function of solar angular incidence were simulated using a BSDF material.
The post-process then was done entirely in LBT reading .idf (for geometry) and .sql for results with appropriate filtering on time, room, etc…
