Example files for [+]


i just changed to honeybee[+] to test anual daylight simulations. At the moment i’m a bit frustrated because neither the pateron access to the tutorial videos is working nor can i find offical example files for [+] with anual daylight simulations. There seems to be a Three Phase … example, but i just found some modified versions from other users.

I konw it’s difficult to develope such a great toolkit and simultaneous deliver a good documentation but at the moment it’s a bit frustrating.

It would be great if you could put some basic exammples for [+] on hydra (and name/group them to make them easier to find)

Best regards,

After a little more searching in the forum i found the hint of @mostapha that the example files are now on github. So for all with the same need, here’s a link to download them all at once:



Hi @HeikoWoehrle, I should have packaged the sample files with the installation but I missed them this time. The link that you provided is the right place to get them for now. The reason they are not on Hydra is that we want to limit the number of users for now until we address the last couple of improvements that I mentioned in the release notes.

Also for future reference you can find Honeybee[+] primer at this link: https://ladybug-tools.gitbooks.io/honeybee-primer/content/

@HeikoWoehrle, I was wondering what tutorial you are referring to? I can’t wait until some advanced daylighting tutorials are released. I understand the concept of 3-phase and 5-phase methods, but, but some things are still not clear to me. For example, the way radiance materials are being defined in HB+.

@RaniaLabib, There is currently no video tutorials for Honeybee[+]. We have been talking about recording one but it has been hard to find the right time to do so. Meanwhile, I started writing a number of wiki pages for Honeybee[+] to document the main differences and workflows.

@mostapha, I didn’t know about the wiki pages, thanks! I just read through some of the wiki pages, I like that the results are being stored in SQL database :+1::+1: I was actually working on writing my own component to parse the results from a text file to an SQL database because I’m working on an Internet of Things projects, where I need to host all the information on one database that will be hosted in the cloud.
