I want to run thermal comfort analysis with envimet-ladybug. But as I connect boolean toggle to runheadquarter- it gets the error: 1. Solution exception:WindowsError
What can I do with it? Does anyone have any idea? I really appreciate it
There are two projects about envimet components: lb_envimet and df_envimet. The first one is borned as part of Ladybug WIP (Rhino 5 compatible and it is written in Python), the second one is part of official release of Dragonfly legacy, it requires Rhino 6, it uses other tecnologhy and it supports ENVI_MET 4.4.1.
What version of ENVI_MET are you using?
I need to update lb_envimet in order to support the latest version of ENVI_MET.
Anyway, I see from the code that the error could be generated by a different structure of latest version of ENVI_MET. Could you try to use attached component?

Let me know if you are able to open the file and so if it works,
Thanks for your quick reply. Yeah it now works fine. But when I want to run simulation it doesn’t calculate it and have these errors.
Do you have any suggestion for this to fix?
I really appreciate it
So you are using lb_envimet and Rhino 5.
It depend on geometries. Could you attach the gh file with internalized geometries so I can replicate your issue with lb_envimet WIP?
Yeah I’m using rhino 5 and lb_envimet
Sure… Here it is :
3.gh (456.1 KB)
By the way, I wonder if there is a way to analyze thermal comfort because I haven’t seen it in lb_envimet componenets
There is an invalid brep, you can try this file: 3_fixed.gh (460.1 KB)
A best practice is to clean geometries as soon as possible. I will add some warning to inform people about invalid geometries.
Other best practice: check if there are small empty space within envimet model, this could create instability during the calculation (this is a question of ENVI_MET, it is not related to the plugin)
In order to achieve a comfort map you need to use 4 components of Envimet read outputs and use Ladybug comfort indices. You can calculate PET, UTCI, PMV and so on…
When you can, please try official plugin df_envimet.
