EP Window Shades - no output

#1

Hi!

I am doing a thermal analysis and want to include window shades. I tried creating them with a window shade generator, but it is giving me an empty output and I don’t understand why.
Also i have tried to insert the surface as a context in my analysis, but this has no effect at all.

Thanks,

Oskar

Welcome to the discourse @oskargram,
For the HBObjWShades output to work the depth of the shade should be much smaller than what you have. This is a limitation of E+. I can’t remember the maximal size but you can try until you get this output to work. From your image is not clear to me that you set the writeEPObjs_ input to True. This is a must for the former output to work.
As for the context issue you need to use the shadeBreps output for that (which i assume you did).
