Honeybee Daylight simulation error

Hi everyone,

When I try to run the honeybee_run_daylightsimulation component, it only works when I don’t rotate the scene (see, img 1 vs 2); both when trying to rotate the scene using a vector or with a number.

I’ve attached an example file.

Looking forward to understanding what is going on?

Thanks in advance for your reply!

The error report states:

  1. Solution exception:unsupported operand type(s) for +=: ‘str’ and ‘bool’

Have you tried the HB_rotateHBObj?


You can report this at the github.


Thanks for finding this issue, Ian and Abraham. I’ll take a look at it shortly.

Ian and Abraham,

Thanks again for bringing this to my attention. It turns out that this was a bug that was introduced because of the new capabilities that I added into the Honeybee transform components that you suggested as a workaround, Abraham. In any case, I fixed the bug here:


And you can find a working file attached.

@chris could you please repost the working file? The problem seem to still persist with Honeybee version 0.0.65.
