Generate a custom sky with illuminance values


Is it possible to create a sky using illuminance values? I am trying to compare values from a daylight experiment with simulations, but I only have lux measurements for the sky instead of W/m2.

Thank you!

Hi @iris_loche,

You can create a uniform point-in-time sky with HB Certain Illuminance. The value is the horizontal illuminance. If you set it to e.g. 5000 lux your simulation results will show 5000 lux for a completely unobstructed sensor with direction (0, 0, 1).
